Buffalo Bills ink former Steelers ILB Stevenson Sylvester

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Former Pittsburgh Steelers ILB and special teams player, Stevenson Sylvester, is just the latest of many former Steelers that are heading to Buffalo to try and kick start their career.

Just when you thought that all the Pittsburgh Steelers re-treads flock to sunny Arizona to play for the Cardinals, think again. The Buffalo Bills continue to take the Steelers' left overs in hopes of getting something out of nothing and turning their franchise around.

The latest addition to the Bills' roster via Pittsburgh is inside linebacker Stevenson Sylvester. Sylvester was a 5th round draft pick of the Steelers in 2010 and played in 50 games for the black and gold, starting in two of those games.

Sylvester was never able to crack the starting lineup with any regularity, even after Larry Foote was lost for the season in 2013, it was rookie Vince Williams that took the starting spot, not Sylvester.

Sylvester was primarily a special teams player during his time in Pittsburgh, and contributed in that facet early and often in his young career. Sylvester now joins the likes of Doug Legursky, Chris Scott, and Tony Hills as former Steelers that now call Buffalo home.

If the Arizona Cardinals are affectionately called "Pittsburgh West", would Buffalo now be known as "Pittsburgh North"? Sure seems like a trend is developing.
