Default Steelers Sign Eight to Practice Squad

Steelers Sign Eight to Practice Squad


PITTSBURGH ― The Steelers signed eight players to their practice squad today in addition to a ninth player who will remain with the team throughout the 2008 season as part of the NFL’s international player development program.

Each of the eight players added to the Steelers’ practice squad were in training camp with the team this summer. All NFL teams were able to sign a maximum of eight players to their practice squad beginning at noon today.

The players signed by the Steelers include: LB Patrick Bailey, CB Roy Lewis, S Grant Mason, OT Jeremy Parquet, DT Scott Paxson, WR Micah Rucker, TE Dezmond Sherrod and RB Justin Vincent.

Wide receiver Marvin Allen was also designated to the team’s practice squad as a part of the NFL’s international player development program.

good news to me...very excited we've been able to keep CB Lewis,WR Rucker,OL Parquet and TE Sherrod

I think we're pretty set at WR for a couple of years with Ward(still has 2-3 yrs left IMO),Holmes,Sweed,Baker,Rucker and maybe Washington if he re-signs at the end of the year

I am surprised that there isnt at least one more D-Lineman on the squad.

well like you im surprised too...we dont need RB Vincent it's a waste spot

there is Haynes and even Dookie in the FA that would be more than happy to come here if and only IF Parker and Mendenhall get injured which i hope wont happen

and by the way....what's happening to LB Humpal,S Mundy ? DE McBean ? I guess they are all heading to Arizona to help em create the Arizona Mini-Steelers with whiz and grimm

Humpal and Mundy were given injury settlement waivers..McBean was given up on.
