The Steelers have inked former LSU outside linebacker Ryan Baker following a tryout today that included former Patriots outside linebacker Markell Carter, according to a league source.
Baker is an undrafted rookie free agent. Baker is a 5-foot-11, 232-pounder with 4.7 speed who earned all-conference honors as a senior. He recorded 58 tackles, 3 1/2 for losses and 1 1/2 sacks. The two-year starter had 87 tackles as a junior with 11 tackles for losses and seven sacks.
He started for two years at linebacker for the Tigers, finishing his career with 184 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. In two years as a starter, LSU’s defense ranked No. 12 nationally in total defense (307.2 ypg in 2010) and No. 2 (261.5 ypg in 2011).
He played in 50 games with 25 starts.
In picking up Baker, former Pitt linebacker Brandon Lindsey was wavied.
Lindsey signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent after a stellar career with the Panthers, where he was named second-team All-Big East following his junior season in 2010 after leading the league in sacks.

It seems likely Rivers will miss the rest of the season, but the team has not made that move yet.
Rivers, perhaps more famously known as the recipient of a Hines Ward hit that ended his rookie season in 2008, had played at a high level in 2009 and was even better in 2010. Still, the Bengals defense has played remarkably well all season, and their core of linebackers are part of a dominant front seven on the defensive side of the ball.
The Bengals will travel to Pittsburgh for a divisional game both teams need to stay competitive in an aggressive AFC playoff race. The Steelers defeated Cincinnati 24-17 in Week 10.
In other transactions, the Bengals signed DT Cornell Banks to their practice squad. He replaced former Steelers third round draft pick Bruce Davis, who had been signed by the team Nov. 23.
Davis barely lasted a season with the Steelers after being taken in the third round of the 2008 draft. He has spent time on the practice squads of New England, Denver, San Francisco and Oakland before ending up with the Bengals.
