The Steelers have signed undrafted rookie cornerback Lew Toler and waived veteran inside linebacker Kion Wilson. The roster moves were disclosed in the NFL’s Thursday transactions.

Wilson, 27, appeared in seven games for Pittsburgh in 2013, notching 12 tackles. He started at left inside linebacker in Weeks Two and Three before being replaced by Vince Williams.

Toler (5-11, 189) played collegiately at Western Michigan and Rutgers, recording 180 tackles and picking off eight passes in 43 games (41 starts). The 23-year-old Toler is one of nine cornerbacks on the Steelers’ roster.

The Steelers begin training camp on Friday.

    Since being tebowed out of the playoffs the steelers have 0 winning seasons and no playoff appearances. Never heard of Lou Toller

    You can get waived for poor play, but you can knock your fiancé out and drag her out of an elevator (ON camera) AND have poor play, yet merely get a 2 game suspension.

    Okay so now we’re getting CB’s? Never heard of Toler hope he has some game.

    .
    The secondary is the greatest unknown about the Steelers. If it looks this thin at the outset, what about after the injuries hit?

    Kion has good athletic ability but he looked lost at times. The LB group is deeper and more of a known entity than our DB’s. Adding more competition for the secondary is a good idea.

    Wilson would not have made the team. Toler will not make the team. Next….
