  • Witherspoon was acquired by the Steelers from the Seahawks on Friday in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round draft pick. Witherspoon signed with Seattle in March but was unable to win a starting job at cornerback in camp, leading the team to trade him. The 26-year-old should compete with Justin Layne for nickel reps in Pittsburgh.

  • Witherspoon isn't expected to be a starter in the season opener against the Colts, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Tre Flowers is on track to start at right cornerback while D.J. Reed secured the job at left cornerback. Witherspoon was expected to win the starting job after signing for $4 million guaranteed in March, but Flowers' strong training camp pushed Witherspoon out of a job. However, Flowers lost that job twice in 2020, so Witherspoon could eventually get another chance.

  • Witherspoon (knee) is expected to be the Seahawks' No. 1 cornerback this season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Witherspoon never quite got his footing in San Francisco due to a crowded secondary and injuries. He's healthy at training camp and is ready to compete for the top job. The Seahawks desperately need him to step into the No. 1 role after Shaquill Griffin left for Jacksonville. So far in camp, the 26-year-old has been sticky in coverage, using his athleticism -- he's 6-foot-3 with 33-inch arms and a 40-inch vertical -- to shut down the team's top receivers. D.J. Reed is expected to secure the other top cornerback role.

  • Witherspoon (knee) is present at OTAs, but rehabbing an injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Witherspoon, who the Seahawks brought in during free agency, is expected to handle a starting role at cornerback, so his health will need to be monitored during OTAs. Of course, there's not yet any reason to believe his injury is more than minor. He did miss five games with the 49ers last season, but that was due to a hamstring issue.

  • Witherspoon (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Witherspoon has missed two straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but it looks like he has a fair shot to retake the field versus Miami. Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), Richard Sherman (calf), K'Waun Williams (knee) and Dontae Johnson (groin) are all ruled out for Week 5, so getting Witherspoon back would provide a much-needed boost for San Francisco's secondary.
