2 New Arrivals....

Postby Steelers76 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 4:20 am

With injuries at various positions after the 1st game, The Steelers signed 2 players this week;

-C/OG Fernando Velasco. Will replace Pouncey at Center . Started all 16 games last season for Tenn. at Center, and didn't allow a sack. Played every game with The Titans from 2010-2012. Released by Tenn. on August 31st.

-K Shayne Graham. Insurance for the ailing Suisham. Is the 7th most accurate Kicker in NFL History with a 85.4 FG average in his career. Was released by Cleveland on August 31st.

I have to wonder why both didn't make the rosters of the teams they were released by considering those teams aren't good, but The Steelers are in no position to pick and choose here.

Thoughts?

More dead weight, that's all... I would have rather seen them sign another Linebacker, but I guess Wilson's the guy.
