The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that they’ve signed five players to a futures contracts for the 2018 season.
The full list of futures signings includes:
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Dangerfield, 27, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Towson back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in Buffalo before he was cut at the start of the 2013 season.
The Steelers later signed him to a future/reserve contract after the season and he was on and off of their practice squad the past few years before making the 53-man roster last season.
Pittsburgh signed him to a one-year, $540,000 deal last January, but decided to waive him with an injury designation and eventually cut him from their injured reserve list with a settlement. Dangerfield signed on to the Steelers’ practice squad in October.
In 2016, Dangerfield appeared in 14 games for the Steelers and recorded 16 tackles and no interceptions.
