The Steelers and cornerback Cortez Allen have agreeed to a four-year contract extension worth $26 million, league sources said.

Allen was set to be a free agent at season’s end and was a priority for the Steelers to re-sign. By pushing Ben Roethlisberger’s contract back to 2015, Pittsburgh was able to use its remaining cap space to extend Marcus Gilbert, Shaun Suisham and Allen — core young players. Allen’s extension kicks in after the 2014 season.
