Steelers Sign Nine Players to Offseason Roster
Thursday, January 7, 2010

PITTSBURGH ― Seven members of the Steelersí 2009 practice squad were among nine players signed today to the teamís offseason roster.

The Steelers announced today that TE Eugene Bright, WR Jason Chery, S Tuff Harris, DT Steve McClendon, RB Isaac Redman, RB Justin Vincent and CB Trae Williams have re-signed with the team after spending part or all of the 2009 season on the clubís practice squad.

The Steelers also re-signed second-year defensive tackle Scott Paxson and first-year kicker Piotr Czech to their offseason roster. Paxson was originally signed by the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2006 out of Penn State and spent time on both the teamís active roster and practice squad from 2006-08. Czech was signed by the Steelers last offseason before being released following the 2009 training camp. He spent the 2008 training camp with the Baltimore Ravens.

That Redman dude is a pretty good size back, they might try to progress him, maybe take over Moore's or Parker's roster spot.

With a year to learn and better conditioning, maybe Redman plays a bigger role in the offense next year. That's MUCH more realistic than the expectations that were heaped upon him earlier this year...

I'm a little long in the tooth for even an off season roster spot.

I am thrilled to see Czech back. If memory serves, he is able to reach the endzone consistently.

I agree. But no one on this roster has the vision and glide like Redman. In fact I wouldn't be hesitant to compare him to Fred Taylor.

Come on man, the team needs your suddenness and vision, even if it is with a walker and bifocals.

I also liked Czech last season, he seemed to show some pretty good potential.

That Czech kid is good, he's kicked 65 yarders steady during practice. Will be a nice addition to kick offs in the endzone if he's used.

If Parker does indeed depart...I can see Redman making the final roster next year if he has a showing like he did this past year.
