Default Re: Timing right for Steelers to draft tall WR

JM: Does Heyward-Bey have any shot to make the team with the emergence of J. Brown? I would assume Bryant has an inside track due to his possible upside and the 5th WR doesn't play much unless there is injuries.

Ed Bouchette: Mike Tomlin was effusive in his praise of Darrius Heyward-Bey today, so I would think he has a shot if they keep six.

Steelers work out former U.S. Army Ranger

August, 27, 2014
By Scott Brown | ESPN.com

The Steelers worked out defensive end Alejandro Villanueva on Wednesday, per ESPN.com’s Field Yates.

The Steelers routinely work out players at team headquarters throughout the year but Villanueva is not just anyone who is pursuing a dream of playing in the NFL.

Villanueva is a former U.S. Army Ranger, and he completed three tours in Afghanistan, earning a Bronze Star Medal for bravery. His service -- and here is more on that in a terrific piece written in May by ESPN.com NFL columnist Ashley Fox -- is not all that stands out about Villanueva.

He is 6-9, 277 pounds and Villanueva had been with the Philadelphia Eagles before getting released earlier this week.

Villanueva, 25, played at Army and then fulfilled his military commitment after graduating from West Point. He signed with the Eagles in May after catching the organization’s attendance at a regional combine, and Villanueva had been trying to make the team as a defensive end.

Villanueva has not played football since 2009 but his size and athleticism make him an intriguing prospect. He played multiple positions at Army and his senior year Villanueva moved to wide receiver and led the team with 34 receptions for 522 yards and five touchdowns.

Chris Bradford @BCTBradford

Moye has been informed #Steelers will place him on 10-man practice squad should he clear waivers

Moye on release: "I wasn’t necessarily surprised about it. I could see it coming a little bit with the other people before me."
