Steelers re-sign RB Ridley, WR Hunter to 1-year deals
- Rodgers downplays take on cutting Nelson
- DE Ansah signs franchise tag with Lions
- 7-time Pro Bowl C Mangold retires
- LB Miller defends shark hunting trip
- Jackson: Browns still unsure on top pick
Both players signed one-year contracts on Thursday to remain with the two-time defending AFC North champions in 2018.
Hunter, 26, caught four passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in seven games with the Steelers last season after signing a free agent deal last spring.
Pittsburgh signed Ridley last December after losing James Conner to a knee injury late in the regular season. Ridley ran 26 times for 108 yards and a score in two games with Pittsburgh.
Ridley's return also gives the Steelers some experienced depth in the backfield if All-Pro Le'Veon Bell opts to skip training camp or a portion of the regular season.
Bell has yet to sign his franchise tender. He didn't sign his franchise tender last season until Labor Day.
