The Steelers sign former Mountaineers Will Johnson & Wes Lyons. Looks like Lyons did enough to get another chance. There is some interesting articles about Johnson on the net. Looks like he has been working hard to chase his dream.

Both of them were underachievers at WVU. I will pull for both of them to make a difference, but I will also expect them both to be cut or practice squad material.

That was awesome. I recommend everyone checks out the youtube video.

Dude looks very natural catching the ball and is quick. Too short (and short arms) for a traditional TE. But, if he can block or even play special teams, he could have a chance to make the team. Maybe our new coordinator can begin to use this hybrid type of split out TE that other teams are having success with.

Why? Seattle disgarded him and now it appears the Eagles don't really want him. Has he done anything of note in the NFL?

Sounds like he has better quals than Johnson then because Johnson has been a liability blocking and passing and it is noted.
