Default Steelers Make Three Roster Moves

Steelers Make Three Roster Moves
Steelers.com

PITTSBURGH ― The Steelers made three roster moves today, including signing free agent tight end Lee Vickers, placing tight end Jonathan Dekker on the Waived/Injured List and waiving defensive end Kevin Huntley.

Vickers (6-6, 275) was originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Steelers as a defensive end out of North Alabama in 2006 but was released that same season in training camp. He was then signed as a tight end to the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad where he spent most of the 2006 season on the practice squad. Vickers was released by the Eagles and signed by the Baltimore Ravens in 2007 and played in nine games as a tight end, starting two. He caught two passes for four yards but was released last week from the Ravens.

Dekker (6-5, 250) suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Steelers’ preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. He originally signed as a rookie free agent with the team in 2006 and spent the entire 2006 season and 11 games of the 2007 season on Pittsburgh’s practice squad. He was signed to the active roster for the final five games of the 2007 regular season, seeing action in three contests.

Huntley (6-7, 290) was waived after failing his physical. He originally signed with the Oakland Raiders as a rookie free agent from Kansas State in 2006. Huntley played in the final five games of his rookie season with Oakland and registered 10 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a recovered fumble. He spent the 2007 season with the Atlanta Falcons and recorded three tackles while playing in five games. The Steelers claimed him last week from the Washington Redskins.

Who is gonna be the #3 TE?? Cody Boyd or Dez Sherrod??

If we signed Vickers as a DE 2 years ago and he bounced around practice squads.....I doubt he has much more than "camp body" to his potential. But I never know.

I take it that Vickers was signed as a TE....he was switched to TE by the Eagles after being initially picked up as a DE

Lee Vickers had a heck of a preseason game against us last year as a Tight End. Even caught a touchdown pass. He could stick since Decker is out of the picture. I think it's a pretty good signing.

Cutting Mahan would be foolish. He is atleast a very good swing man in the interior line and we will need a quality backup at Center if Hartwig wins the spot or gets hurt during the regular season.

Mahan is an important part of our OL depth.
