Default Steelers sign rookie cornerback, 2 wide receivers to practice squad

Steelers sign rookie cornerback, 2 wide receivers to practice squad
December 12, 2012 9:48 am
By Gerry Dulac / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


The Steelers have signed rookie cornerback Isaiah Green of Fresno State and re-signed wide receivers David Gilreath and Derek Moye to their practice squad.

The team released wide receiver Bert Reed from the practice squad. The Steelers had another open spot on the practice squad because running back Baron Batch was signed to the 53-man roster to replace suspended Rashard Mendenhall.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed Gilreath from the practice squad several weeks ago. But the Buccaneers released him Monday and the Steelers quickly re-signed him.

Green was an undrafted free agent who signed with the Buffalo Bills in May. He is 5-feet-10, 180 pounds.

I'm almost excited to see Dallas's WR's burn the absolute living shit out of us. 5'2 Josh Victorian pumps me UP. That aside, I'll be in Dallas. HERE WE GO! Hopefully, our guys show up this week.

Revis, Flowers, Haden and Joseph are arguably all in the top 5 CBs in the league. They're also all under 6 ft tall. Height isn't as big a deal as most guys make it out to be. I mean it helps, sure, but it's not a make-or-break for corners.
