STEELERS REACH CONTRACT AGREEMENT WITH SECOND OF TWO
SEVENTH-ROUND DRAFT PICKS
The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed their second of two seventh-round selections from this year?s NFL Draft, announcing they have reached a multi-year agreement with running back Noah Herron.
Herron, a 5-11, 224-pound running back from Northwestern, was the 244th overall selection in the Draft . Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Herron was a second-team All-Big Ten selection last year and was the Chicago Tribune?s Big Ten Back of the Year.
