The Pittsburgh Steelers have made some more moves as they get into the thick of the 2016 offseason, and they did so by signing four players to future/reserve contracts. There were two wide receivers, and two cornerbacks added to the team's offseason roster.

See who they added below, and a little about each prospect:

WR Issac Blakeney

The former Duke wide receiver was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent, but was released and spent a short period of time with the Washington Redskins in 2015. After his release, the Steelers were the next team to give the 6-foot 6-inch wide receiver a chance at a roster spot.

WR Tobais Palmer

The North Carolina State product was signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2013 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but his home team has been on wheels as he spent time in 2013 with San Diego Chargers as well. In 2014, he signed with the New Orleans Saints, but ended up with the Buffalo Bills. The 5-foot 11-inch, 190-pound wide receiver will have his work cut out for him with a stacked depth chart ahead of him.

CB Montell Garner

Garner played his college football at South Alabama, and stands at 5-feet 11-inches and weighs 188-pounds. Garner was an undrafted free agent by the then St. Louis Rams, but was unable to solidify a spot within the organization.

CB Al-hajj Shabazz

Shabazz played collegiately at Division II West Chester University, but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was later released. Shabazz has quality size for the cornerback position, standing at 6-feet 2-inches and 200-pounds.
