The Buffalo Bills added some depth to their secondary Friday, signing cornerback Brian Allen. 

A third-year veteran, Allen, 26, was a fifth-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017. He spent two years with the Steelers, appearing in 16 games, mostly on special teams. He spent the 2019 season on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.

Allen played in college at Utah, appearing in 42 games and making 12 starts. He finished with 62 tackles, 14 passes defensed and five interceptions, four of which came as a senior in 2016, ranking tied for fifth in the Pac-12.

A 6-foot-3-inch, 215-pounder, Allen brings size to the Bills' defensive backfield. He'll compete for a reserve role behind Tre'Davious White, Josh Norman, Levi Wallace and Taron Johnson.
