Default David Johnson Waived/Injured, Steelers Sign TE Justin Peelle

As expected, FB/TE David Johnson was placed on the Waived/Injured list Monday, the result of a torn ACL suffered in the Steelers' 24-23 loss at Philadelphia in their opening preseason game.

To replace him, they signed veteran blocking TE Justin Peele, a 10-year NFL veteran who last played sparingly with San Francisco.

Johnson's designation exposes him to waivers, and gives teams a chance to sign him. If no one does, his rights return to Pittsburgh, who then place him on Injured Reserve.

Wrecked his knee. Torn ACL/MCL.

"'Waived injured'


and that's the end of that Steeler saga - too bad for him

MarkKaboly_Trib By waiving David Johnson injured, teams can now pick him up and stash him on 90 man roster until final cutdown day then

MarkKaboly_Trib “@mwelchpgh: why waive Johnson?”he was UFA next year anyways. Now they can immediately fill his roster spot if not, had to wait till 9/3

Wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots took him. They grabbed a TE from the waived/injured list of the Giants. They really love tight ends.

yeah, in 10 seasons...that's roughly an average of 12 catches for 100 yards and 1 TD per season for you math majors.

Justin Peelle has mostly been used to block in 2 TE sets, and if he makes our roster (unlikely) he will do so because of his blocking ability and not his receiving skills.

He's almost assuredly a camp body + insurance policy in case somebody else is injured. They still have Leonard Pope, Weslye Saunders, Jamie McCoy, and David Paulson behind Miller.
