New UDFA signings - long snapper + OT

According to, Steelers sign Tackle Ramon Foster (6'6" - 325) out of Tennessee and Long Snapper Mark Estermyer from Pitt.


Foster is a three-year starter who won Freshman All-SEC honors in 2005 after stepping in at left guard and right tackle due to injuries. He primarily started at right tackle the past three seasons, but he will be tried inside and outside at the next level to see where he fits best. Foster was named to the ESPN Mark May's 2007 "MayDay Team" after playing with a broken thumb throughout most of his junior season. Had an arm span of 34 1/2 inches and a hand span of 10 inches at the combine.

From Pitt's website: 

A vital part of Pitt's kicking game as the starting long snapper...handles punts, field goals and extra incredibly consistent and reliable a true "student of snapping," watching endless film of himself and other long snappers on the pro and college levels...also accomplished in the classroom and was named to the Big East All-Academic Football Team each of the last three years.

Anyone know anything about these dudes?


UPDATE: From the comments - also signed: linebacker Tom Korte of Hillsdale College + safety Derrick Richardson of New Mexico State.

From Hillsdale's website:

Korte distinguished himself as one of the best linebackers in the 117-year history of Hillsdale College football during his career that spanned from 2005-08. He led the team in tackles three times, was named the team's most outstanding linebacker three times, and was tabbed First-Team All-GLIAC three times. 

From the Las Cruces Sun-News:

Last year, Richardson was the Aggies' top defensive player and was among the country's best. He averaged 12.5 tackles per game, tops in the nation, and his 137 tackles were a career-best for a season.
