Could be a great signing.
If my memory serves me right: he has a stellar rookie season, was very good in 2010 & 2011, then got injured, but regained his form in 2013.
In Detroit, he was surrounded by three horrible defenders on that secondary. You put Ed Reed in that secondary, and he is bogged down in a similar fashion.
Conversely, surround Louis with Cortez, Ike (or a rookie), Troy, and Shamarko... and he'll be very, very good.
The Steelers could be getting an A- player, for the price of a B- player, due to that player having been in arguably the worst secondary in the NFL.
