Steelers wave rookie WR
Steelers waive rookie WR
Wednesday, June 15, 2005
PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers released free agent rookie wide receiver Tavaris Capers from their offseason roster, the team announced today.
Capers (5-8, 174) signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Central Florida on April 25, after not being selected in the 2005 NFL Draft.
A two-year starter in college, Capers finished second on the team in 2004 with 36 receptions for 514 yards (14.3 avg.) and four touchdowns. During his junior season in 2003, Capers led UCF with 67 receptions for 585 yards (8.7 avg.) and seven touchdowns.
The WR group is pretty stacked right now w/ vets and young talent, so this will give this guy a chance to hook up somewhere else atleast.
