Default Steelers Promote Wide Receiver Grisham from Practice Squad

Steelers sign Grisham to active roster
Wednesday, December 9, 2009

PITTSBURGH ─ The Steelers added depth at wide receiver today when they promoted rookie WR Tyler Grisham to their active roster.

Grisham (5-11, 180) had spent the entire regular season on the Steelersí practice squad after originally signing with the team as an undrafted rookie out of Clemson. Grisham caught 132 passes for 1,390 yards and eight touchdowns during his college career, but was among the Steelersí final roster cuts during the preseason. He will wear uniform No. 19.

The Steelers made room on their roster for Grisham by releasing second-year QB Tyler Palko. Palko signed with the Steelers on Nov. 28, but did not see any action. He served as the teamís backup quarterback in Week 12 at Baltimore and as the 3rd quarterback in Week 13 versus Oakland.

Griisham was a special teams captain at Syracuse.

I'm makig the prediction now that given a bit of time he will be out new special teams beast in the mold of Sean Morey and Chidi Iwuoma.

I had mentioned in another thread that it was just a matter of time before he was moved up.

*Clemson

I remember watching him play in Clemson, he is a pretty quick little guy that can break one if given the chance.

I liked this pick up a lot and see him possibly gettin in some action in a few years

im a bit suprised s. mcdonald wasnt brought back (actually suprised he was cut in the first place).

i would still want sweed to get more action than him, but would feel much better with him as #4 instead of grisham.

I must have missed the article. I was wondering what happened to him..., and I agree.

McDonald had good hands, but not as many YAC or as quick as Holmes. He could be a solid #2 WR on most other teams and am surprised the Fins did not pick him up.

Good for Tyler Grisham. IMO Grisham would be the perfect slot WR down the road. So much for the theory of bringing back Shaun McDonald
