Steelers agree with 10 undrafted free agents


Though the Steelers didn’t select a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, they did add one afterwards.

The club announced Saturday it had reached agreements with 10 undrafted free agents, including Cincinnati quarterback Brendon Kay.

Kay (6-4, 228) completed 262-of-395 passes for 3,302 yards with 22 TDs and 12 interceptions in 2013 for the Bearcats.

Bruce Gradkowski and Landry Jones are the Steelers’ primary backups to starter Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers also agreed with these undrafted free agents: Stanford defensive back Devon Carrington, Youngstown State offensive lineman Chris Elkins, Wisconsin defensive end Ethan Hemer, UAB offensive tackle Kaycee Ike, Shepherd linebacker Howard Jones, Stanford defensive end Josh Mauro, Louisville defensive tackle Roy Philon, East Carolina offensive guard Will Simmons and Missouri tight end Eric Waters.

The Steelers will hold their rookie minicamp from Friday, May 16 through Sunday, May 18.

    Gil Brandt’s tracker said Steelers also agree with Ohio St. WR Corey “Don’t Call Me Philly” Brown, if that floats anyone’s boat.

    It would be nice to see some more of some UDFA they brought last season, like JD Woods, or Reggie Dunn who is I think with the patriots right now. They should also bring back a guy they had a week on the PS, Ray Graham, his buddies Alvester Alexander and Le’Veon Bell miss him. I wanted that Alexander Graham Bell trio so much!

    Funny coming from the one and dones. Will it take you more time to win a playoff game or the steelers to win another Super Bowl? I d bet on the steelers.

    The Steelers have had some good luck with undrafted players, Robert Golden and Ramon Foster as examples. You never know. Most of these guys will be moving on with life by this time next year, but one or two of them will have decent NFL careers. They’re already closer to the NFL then any of us have ever been, so good luck to ’em.

    Steelers do it right. The added FA’s are a LB and trench players.

    Cincy probably added a couple punters, to backup huber each steeler game.
