    Some more on this. Doggett appears to be special teams pick up and interesting comment about safety

    WEDNESDAY, JAN. 13

    2:15 p.m.: Voila! Just as I finished writing how much I liked Derrick Doggett in college, I learned Doggett has signed with the Steelers.

    Doggett was a backup linebacker for the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but had 27 special teams tackles in 15 games. As noted below, I liked this undersized OLB when he played at Oregon State and always wondered if he could play safety. Maybe the Steelers are wondering about it as well.

    1:50 p.m.: According to Scout.com news hound Adam Caplan, the Steelers worked out the following players this week at their South Side facility:

    * Derrick Doggett, LB, Oregon State

    * Renardo Foster, T, Louisville

    * Jake Helms, T, Lenoir-Rhyne

    * Kenny Lewis, DB, Bowling Green

    * Titus Ryan, WR, Concordia, Ala.

    * Geoff Tisdale, DB, Pittsburg, Kan.

    The only familiar names are Foster, the older brother of Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster, and Doggett, who was a terrific albeit undersized linebacker in college. He's been playing in the CFL and could help the Steelers' depth at safety and on special teams
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Interesting stuff. Just out of curiosity, where did you find this?

    Doggett sounds like a guy who could be a good special teams player.

    Do we really want a guy on our team whose name sounds like "dog it?"

    We don't need a 'project' safety. We need one that can get on the field his first season. These guys are training camp fodder.

    Steelers sign ST player

    Derrick Doggett, from Winnepeg of the CFL. I know nothing about this guy, but I do know the Steelers desperately need to find a couple of standout ST players. Hope they make this a priority this offseason.
