Steelers Sign Three To Futures Deals Including S Malik Golden

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Friday that they’ve signed S Malik Golden, LB Darnell Leslie and P Matt Wile to futures contracts for the 2018 season.

As of now, the Redskins have signed 13 players to futures deals including:

  1. CB Dashaun Phillips
  2. LB Farrington Huguenin
  3. S Jordan Dangerfield
  4. TE Jake McGee
  5. LB Matt Galambos
  6. DE Lavon Hooks
  7. LB Keith Kelsey
  8. WR Justin Thomas
  9. WR Marcus Tucker
  10. DE Casey Sayles
  11. S Malik Golden
  12. LB Darnell Leslie
  13. P Matt Wile

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Golden, 24, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State a few months ago. However, the 49ers elected to cut him loose a few weeks later.

Golden signed on with the Steelers at the end of June but was waived with an injury designation and later reverted to injured reserve. Pittsburgh released him with an injury settlement in September.

During his college career, Golden recorded 130 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a recovery and five pass defenses over the course of four seasons and 34 games.
