According to Josina Anderson, safety Karl Joseph is traveling to Pittsburgh today for a visit with the Steelers.
Joseph was a first-round pick by the Raiders in 2016 and has compiled 303 total tackles, 220 of them being solos, five interceptions, 19 passes defended, three sacks, five quarterback hits, 11 tackles for losses, one forced fumble and five fumble recoveries in 63 career games, 49 of which were starts. Joseph was with the Browns last season and started eight games, but Cleveland decided to not re-sign him.
The Steelers were interested in Joseph when he was coming out of West Virginia in 2016. Mike Tomlin was at his pro day and was seen having a conversation with Joseph. The Steelers could certainly use depth at the safety position behind Minkah Fitzpatrick and Terell Edmunds. Joseph has starting experience as well, so for the right price, signing the West Virginia product would make a lot of sense.
