The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to add to their inflated 90-man offseason roster by signing three offensive players to reserve/future contracts Monday.
We have signed WR Trey Griffey, WR Tevin Jones and RB James Summers to Reserve/Future contracts.— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) January 29, 2018
The three players who were added were:
WR Trey Griffey
WR Tevin Jones
RB James Summers.
Griffey, whose father is MLB Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr., will get a shot at making an NFL roster in Pittsburgh.
While most simply shake off these reserve/future contract players, I constantly remind fans how Mike Hilton was one of those players heading into the 2017 season. He was one of the players who found themselves in an article just like this, nothing more than a footnote, and he turned his opportunity not into just a special teams role on the 53-man roster, but into a starting position on the team’s defense.
Stay tuned to BTSC as we continue to update the team’s offseason roster, and give you the latest news surrounding the black-and-gold.
