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.
