AAF: Salt Lake Stallions at San Diego Fleet Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

With the inaugural season of the Alliance of American Football coming to a premature end last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers have moved quickly to sign some of the more talented players from the league who are now available.

On Friday the team officially announced the signings of Jack Tocho and J.C. Hassenauer. As of Monday, it would appear that they have added former San Diego Fleet defensive back Kameron Kelly to the roster, if his latest social media posts are to be believed.

A move also seemingly confirmed by The Sporting News.

Kelly was one of the four players we highlighted on this site last week as one of the AAF players Pittsburgh should consider signing, and it would seem we were not the only ones who saw NFL caliber talent in this young defensive back.

Converted from safety to cornerback at San Diego State, Kelly joined the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2018, only to be released in the final round of cuts later in the year. Initially signed by the Fleet as a wide receiver, he would move back to defense when San Diego were hit by injuries to their cornerbacks.

As per Arif Hasan of The Athletic, the 6-foot-2 defender ranked fifth in the AAF in passer rating allowed among cornerbacks and led the league with four interceptions. He would also record 10 interceptions in 43 games for San Diego State.
