Blake signed a contract Friday to remain with the Steelers, earning $1.54 million in 2015, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Blake finished with 43 tackles (38 solo) and one interception in 2014, adding one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Following the departure of Ike Taylor and lack of additions in the secondary, he could be in line to see some playing time defensively next season unless the Steelers add some help in the draft.

The Steelers are still acquiring information about the incident and nothing should be assumed until they're ready to make an official statement on the matter.
