The Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to contract terms with both of their fifth-round picks from the 2009 draft, a league source told Scout.com.

CB Joe Burnett (Central Florida/32nd pick in the round) and FB Frank Summers (UNLV/33nd pick in the round) agreed to three-year deals. The remaining terms of their deals weren't immediately available.

Burnett will attempt to make the Steelers' roster as a fifth cornerback. Summers, who is powerfully built, could see time in a short-yardage role in addition to seeing time at fullback.
