Steelers add Deion Belue


The Steelers have added a rookie cornerback and parted ways with a rookie offensive lineman.

According to the NFL’s transactions, Pittsburgh was awarded former Alabama corner Deion Belue on waivers from Miami on Wednesday.

To make room for Belue, the Steelers waived offensive tackle Kaycee Ike, an undrafted free agent from UAB.

The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Belue was a two-season starter for the Crimson Tide, notching 60 tackles, breaking up 10 passes and recording three interceptions. Belue, who signed with Miami earlier in May after going undrafted, will vie to stick on a Steelers roster that is in need of some young talent at cornerback.

The Steelers have all 90 roster spots filled.
