Pittsburgh Steelers Sign T Jamon Meredith, Place Colon On IR

New, comments

The Steelers have officially placed RT Willie Colon on Injured Reserve after his surgery Tuesday. The team announced the signing of former Bills T Jamon Meredith

Along with the immediate christening of the nickname "Dandy" Jamon Meredith, he will wear No. 69, and is the second offensive lineman in two seasons to sign with Pittsburgh who played with Buffalo in 2009. Former Bills and current Steelers offensive line coach, Sean Kugler, had both Meredith and current starting LT Jonathan Scott, that season. 

Meredith made four starts in his rookie year in Buffalo after Green Bay had drafted him in the fifth round, only to release him at the end of training camp. 

He was released from Buffalo in 2010, and played for a spell with the Giants before being released. 

The move makes sense in that he has some game experience, and has played under his new position coach previously. Apparently made enough of an impression on Kugler and the Steelers despite not having been on a team since Week 13 of last year.
