Chiefs land LB Melvin Ingram in swap with Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded pass rusher Melvin Ingram to the Kansas City Chiefs hours before the trade deadline Tuesday, the 32-year-old linebacker told multiple outlets.

NFL Network reports the Steelers will receive a 2022 sixth-round draft pick for Ingram, who is being acquired to boost the pass rush for Kansas City.

Ingram signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Steelers at the start of training camp. The Chiefs hosting Ingram on a springtime free agency visit but he did not receive a contract offer. The Miami Dolphins also expressed interest in Ingram during free agency.

But Ingram reportedly had been disgruntled with his role on the team and asked for a trade. The 32-year-old appeared in six games (one start) with Pittsburgh and played on 62 percent of the team’s defensive snaps – a drop from 82 percent last season in his final year with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Chargers selected him with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Ingram has appeared in 119 games (87 starts), tallying 370 tackles, 50 sacks, three interceptions, 29 passes defensed, 14 forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.
