The Steelers added another versatile player to their roster today by signing the former Ohio State running back, Jordan Hall. To make room for Hall on the roster the team released cornerback Deion Belue.
Hall was given an open try out during the Steelers' 2014 rookie minicamp and his versatility jives with the direction the Steelers are headed as a team.
Hall garnered 3,486 all purpose yards during his time at Ohio State0 mainly as a running back, but his ability to also return kicks is the versatility the Steelers have been focusing on this offseason.
In 2011, Hall collected 683 yards as a kickoff return man, but Hall will have a difficult time seeing the field other than for special teams practices in minicamp and training camp due to the Steelers' 3rd round draft pick Dri Archer's ability to not only return kicks, but to play in the backfield as well as a receiver.
The Steelers continue their minicamp today and will wrap up their last team organized practice until training camp tomorrow.
