Steelers released CB Justin King.
King was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury in June. A four-year veteran who made 12 starts for the Rams in 2011, King was ineffective in spot duty for the Colts last season. One of the worst starters in the league in 2011, King will have trouble finding a new home. Tue, Jul 2, 2013 08:05:00 PM

Steelers placed CB Justin King (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

King landed a $715,000 reserve/futures contract with the Steelers in January despite grading out as one of the worst corners in the league over the last two years. He was far from guaranteed to make the final 53, but now the Steelers will likely have to carry that $715K on the books for the season. Undrafted Kansas State rookie CB Nigel Malone has been added to the roster.

Steelers signed CB Justin King to a reserve/futures contract.

King latched on with the Steelers late in the season when starters Ike Taylor and Keenan Lewis were injured. The local product will be part of the offseason program, but is far from guaranteed a 2013 roster spot. His on-field performance over the last two seasons has been among the worst in the league.

Steelers signed CB Justin King.

The Steelers are absolutely desperate for corner help. Starters Ike Taylor (leg) and Keenan Lewis (hip) are both very questionable for Week 16, as is top backup Cortez Allen (hip). They ended last week's loss to the Cowboys with Curtis Brown and Josh Victorian as their base corners. King was nothing short of woeful while playing for the Colts last season, but at least brings 38 games of NFL experience to the table.

Colts released CB Justin King.

King won the Colts' nickel job in camp, but was off to a rough start before coming down with a groin injury. He made 12 starts for the Rams last season, tallying 58 tackles and one interception. He should find work before season's end.

Colts CB Justin King is week to week with a groin injury.

King joins Vontae Davis (ankle) as questionable for Week 5 when the Colts come out of their bye against the Packers. King is the No. 3 corner behind Davis and Jerraud Powers.

Justin King has won the Colts' nickel corner job.

King was one of the worst corners in the league last year when pressed into a starting role outside. The Colts will try to hide him in the slot while Vontae Davis and Jerraud Powers man the top two spots.
Wed, Sep 5, 2012 12:21:00 PM

Colts DC Greg Manusky said Justin King has taken the lead in the left cornerback battle.

It's a bad sign that 2010 third-rounder Kevin Thomas has been unable to hold onto the gig. King has elite speed, but lacks physicality and graded out as the worst corner in the league last season by Pro Football Focus. This Colts secondary will be one for fantasy owners to attack this season.

Colts signed CB Justin King, formerly of the Rams.

The 2008 fourth-rounder was routinely toasted in coverage while playing through groin, ankle, and shoulder injuries as a fill-in for starter Ron Bartell last season. If he's healthy following post-season shoulder surgery, King will add much-needed experience to a green secondary in Indy.

Free agent CB Justin King worked out for the Colts on Friday.

Thrust into the starting lineup after St. Louis lost Ron Bartell for the year in Week 1 last season, King struggled with injuries and was routinely burned. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' worst corner. He'd be a pure depth signing for Indy.

Rams CB Justin King needs surgery on his injured shoulder.

Thrust into the starting lineup after the Rams lost Ronald Bartell for the season in Week 1, King has been inactive each of the past two weeks. Consistently burned this season, King has graded out as the worst cornerback in football by Pro Football Focus. The surgery may hold King out of Organized Team Activities this offseason, hurting his chances of impressing a coaching staff.

Rams CB Justin King (ankle) is questionable for Week 11 after missing practice on Thursday and Friday.

It's par for the course for St. Louis, who has placed a staggering nine cornerbacks on injured reserve since the beginning of training camp. If King can't go, Nate Ness, who was signed off the practice squad just four days ago, will be forced to start opposite journeyman Rod Hood.
Sat, Nov 19, 2011 10:30:00 AM

Rams CB Justin King left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys with a groin injury and did not return.

The Rams' secondary is absolutely in tatters. King's injury left them with just Al Harris, Josh Gordy and Rod Hood as healthy corners. Bradley Fletcher, Rob Bartell and Jerome Murphy are all done for the season.
Mon, Oct 24, 2011 12:27:00 PM

Justin King is expected to start in place of LCB Ron Bartell (fractured neck) going forward.

King is a 2008 fourth-round pick that goes just 5'11/188. He's more of a speed corner than a physical player, which could be an issue if Hakeem Nicks (knee) suits up tonight. Either way, Eli Manning has a plus matchup as he tries to snap out of his doldrums.
Mon, Sep 19, 2011 09:18:00 AM

Rams re-signed CB Justin King.

King was headed for restricted free agency after playing eight games in sub-packages last season. If the Rams upgrade at corner, King may have to battle to keep his roster spot next season.
