Damond Talbot of NFL Draft Diamonds reports that the Steelers are planning to sign AAF offensive lineman J.C. Hassenauer to a contract.
Jeremy Fowler confirms the news and adds that the deal is pending a physical.
Hassenauer, 24, wound up signing on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama back in May of last year. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with Atlanta, but was waived coming out of the preseason.
The Falcons re-signed Hassenauer to their practice squad, only to release him a month later.
From there, Hassenauer signed on with the Birmingham Iron of the AAF.
Hassenauer has yet to appear in an NFL game.
