A Grantland article published an article this week naming their NFL “All-Bad-Contracts” team. One of their two starting cornerbacks was Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen.

DB coach Carnell Lake says 'For Cortez, the proof will be in the pudding'

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen was having a miserable season before a thumb injury ended his 2014 campaign. The team needs Allen to rebound; with Shamarko Thomas replacing Troy Polamalu and Mike Mitchell looking lost at free safety, Pittsburgh could be in deep trouble.

Steelers Decision With Cortez Allen is More Than Just Money

If Steelers’ beleaguered cornerback Cortez Allen is still on the roster as of June 1st, he receives a $3 million roster bonus. Will the team want to pay him that much for being a likely back-up and special teams player? If they cut him prior to June 1st, they can save some money. His dead money would be less than $2 million this year and would be just over $4 million in 2016. With...

Cortez Allen will be an awfully expensive nickel back Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Houston Texans at Heinz Field. The Steelers agreed to pay Allen 520 million nickels, or $26 million, over the next five years. But because of his lackluster performance this season, Allen has lost his starting job to Brice McCain.
