Default Steelers Sign Tight End Sean McHugh

Steelers Sign Tight End Sean McHugh


PITTSBURGH — The Steelers added a third tight end to their active roster today as they signed veteran tight end Sean McHugh to a one-year deal.

McHugh (6-5, 265) spent the past three seasons with the Detroit Lions on both their active roster and practice squads. He was originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the seventh round (214st overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Penn State. McHugh was cut by the Titans following their 2004 training camp and signed by the Green Bay Packers, where he spent the entire 2004 campaign.

In 25 career games (14 starts), McHugh has 20 receptions for 277 yards (13.9 avg.). He had his best season in 2007 for the Lions, playing in 15 games (12 starts) and making 17 catches for 252 yards (14.8 avg.).

Blocking is his strength..plays Fullback and Tight end...saw action at fullback in six games with the Lions.

I remeber that he was a good receiver out of the backfield when he played at PSU. He is more on a H-back, than a true TE.

what is it with colbert and his hand-me-down lions' players?

are the steelers slowly turning into the lions? that's not a good thing.

he's gonna cut ben in a salary cap saving move and bring in jon kitna.

really, other than hartings (who was pretty decent, right?), i cant remember any former lions of significance. we did bring in jones for a look see, but we scouted him before he was even drafted as a lion.

Sounds like a good fit for what we need from that position and depth.
