The Pittsburgh Steelers are still adding players to their 90-man offseason roster, and continued to add reserve talent to the special teams groups by signing both a punter and long snapper to futures contracts Tuesday.
Long snapper Kameron Canaday was signed, who played linebacker at Portland State before trying out for the Arizona Cardinals as a long snapper, and punter A.J. Hughes, who attended Virginia Tech and graduated in 2015, will both have reserve roles on the squad this offseason.
To be honest, these two players were signed strictly as insurance policies at the long snapper and punter positions. With Jordan Berry solidified as the team’s punter, and Greg Warren recently signing a new one-year contract, Canaday and Hughes will take repetitions in offseason workouts, lightening the load for the starters, as well as being in the system in case an injury occurs.
