It would appear that the Pittsburgh Steelers liked a lot of what they saw from some of the 19 players invited to take part in tryouts during rookie minicamp, with news of yet another signing from that group emerging on Monday.

As per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Maryland offensive lineman Damian Prince is the latest undrafted free agent the Steelers have opted to sign after watching him workout during limited training sessions held over the last three days.

Prince will become the fourth player signed after his tryouts this year, joining Samford quarterback Delvin Hodges, Toledo outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper and former Oregon, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Henry Mondeaux, all reported to have signed with the team this weekend.

A familiar face to seventh-round draft pick Derwin Gray, Prince held down the opposite end of the line as teammates at Maryland, with both players seen as two of the leaders on offense. Now the two friends will get the opportunity to continue their journey together in Pittsburgh.
