Steelers dust off David Pittman

As we prepare for another seven-round player selection process, we'll be reminded at times of guys taken fairly high in recent drafts who are having trouble staying in the league.
One of them is cornerback David Pittman. The Ravens picked him with the 87th overall selection in 2006, and he ultimately ended up out of football in 2009.
But Pittman is getting a shot at redemption, in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have announced that he has been signed to the 80-man offseason roster.
Also signed by the Steelers was linebacker Renauld Williams, who spent 2004 through 2006 with the 49ers before heading to Canada, where he played for three years as a member of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders.
