    Signings

    Probably not very significant moves -- R.J. Prince, OT, North Carolina State and Damoun Patterson, WR, Youngstown State, signed to contracts after this weekend's minicamp. No word yet on who will be waived to make room for them.

    I'd like to see that guy who had the spinal cord contusion and was paralyzed a few years ago signed. Also the WR who was a walk-on a few years ago, and this is his 3rd "rookie mini-camp" ... it'd be a nice story if he were signed also.

    Or maybe that's who D. Patterson is??


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    No, I think Patterson was playing in college last fall.

    Steelers sign two from rookie tryouts

    The Steelers signed Damoun Patterson and R.J. Prince.

    Damoun Patterson and R.J. Prince went into Steelers rookie minicamp trying to make an impression.

    They both left signing a contract.

    Patterson and Prince were both invited to the three-day camp on a tryout basis, and it’s been proven over the past few years that Coach Mike Tomlin truly gives each player an opportunity. These two being the latest.

    Patterson, a wide receiver from Youngstown State, caught 32 passes for 555 yards and four touchdowns last season, and 20 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns in 2016. He also played on special teams, with 17 tackles over two seasons.

    Prince, a guard who played at North Carolina, started 11 of the 12 games he played in last season. He started 12 games his junior year.


    Truly appreciative of the staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers for giving me this opportunity! Officially a Pittsburgh Steeler! Time to get to work pic.twitter.com/6Kr1FLbeLt

    The team released tackle Ikenna Nwokeji, an undrafted rookie free agent from Elon.

    Forced patriotism is an oxymoron.

    A government leader proclaiming that citizens have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or else they shouldn't be in the country sounds more like a mandated decree from a totalitarian dictator like Kim Jong Un rather than the leader of the Free World.

    Our ability to peacefully protest is a fundamental American right, and any attempt by our government to squash this freedom is what is truly dishonoring the liberty that our Star Spangled Banner symbolizes.

    So Patterson is a interesting 90th man headed for camp. He could get cut before camp even starts so no reason to get excited however he looks like a natural hands catcher with enough speed 4.45 enough height 6 ft n 192lbs to at least be able to compete at camp. Watching parts of games against the likes of S. Illinois or N Dakota St or James Madison it is not close to the level he will see even at camp but he tracks the ball well and is very quick. Now I did not see him get jammed much so that is a to be determined but got some skills to work with. He was a gunner on special teams and for him to have any chance for the practice squad he'll need to shine there. He'll be an interesting watch at camp this summer.
