Steelers work out local pair

According to, the Steelers worked out Waynesburg University defensive end Mike Czerwien and California University punter Jace Amore after their OTA Thursday.

The 5-8, 225-pound Czerwien led college football with 23 sacks and 34.5 tackles for loss last season. He finished his career with 53.5 sacks at Waynesburg.

Obviously, the North Hills High School product would be a linebacker for the Steelers, if they decided to sign him, but no move has been made as of yet.

Amore was a transfer from Temple. The Elizabeth Forward High School grad averaged 40.1 yards per punt last season.

The Steelers did not sign a rookie punter for camp behind Daniel Sepulveda following the draft.

The DE had some crazy stats. Probably too short, but maybe he could become one of those high motor/underdog types that become fan favorites through camp.
