The Steelers have traded a conditional draft pick in return for the seventh-year tackle.

Brown, who is signed through 2016, started all four games this year for the Cardinals at left tackle.

He has started 79 career games since being drafted fifth overall in the 2007 NFL Draft out of Penn State. Brown missed all of the 2012 season with a torn bicep, but had started every game for four consecutive seasons (2008-11) prior to that injury.

To make room on the roster, the team released cornerback Isaiah Green.
