Steelers Sign 8 Players To Futures Deals


The Pittsburgh Steelers officially signed eight players to future/reserve contracts on Monday now that their 2015 season has come to an end.

The list of players signed today include: DB Jordan Dangerfield, OT Matt Feiler, C B.J. Finney, DB Isaiah Frey, TE Xavier Grimble, RB Rajion Neal, WR Shakim Phillips, and RB Abou Toure.

Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.

Dangerfield, 25, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Towson back in 2013. He was unable to make the final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason and was subsequently placed on waivers.

Pittsburgh later signed him to a future/reserve contract and eventually added him to their practice squad last season. However, he was once again among their final roster cuts and spent the entire 2015 season on their practice squad.

Dangerfield has yet to appear in an NFL game.
