    The Steelers signed three players on Monday who were previously with the Alliance of American Football, including defensive tackle Winston Craig, linebacker JT Jones and cornerback Kameron Kelly.

    Craig, who played the for San Antonio Commanders of the now defunct AAF, originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, but was released before the start of the season. The Eagles brought him back in the 2018 offseason, but he was released following the preseason. Craig played college football at Richmond.

    Jones, who played for Miami University (Ohio), signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2017 and spent the year on the team's practice squad. He was released by the Falcons before the start of the 2018 season and most recently played for the Atlanta Legends in the AAF. He was a second-team All-MAC selection his senior season at Miami, recording six and a half sacks.

    Kelly was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in 2018 as an undrafted rookie free agent following the draft. Kelly, who played college ball at San Diego State, was released by the Cowboys before the start of the 2018 season. He played with the AAF's San Diego Fleet. At San Diego State he was first-team All- Mountain West Conference in 2017 and won the Byron H. Chase Memorial Trophy as the Aztecs defensive player of the year.

    I like the Kameron Kelly signing especially. He's got good size (6'2" 205 lbs.) but not necessarily the straight-line speed you look for in a corner prospect.

    However, I like how his instincts, vision, and aggressiveness in run support match up with what we would be looking for in a potential safety prospect.

    He was a safety for his first 3 years at San Diego State before moving to corner as a senior. Plus, the kid has ball skills after being a dual-threat QB and WR in high school (in addition to DB), and he even played some WR in the AAF early on this season.

    The Cowboys brought him in as an UDFA CB last year, but he did not make the team coming out of camp. I think that the kid could have a real shot in camp here this year if we try to develop him as a safety as opposed to a corner.

    I think he could be a Mike Hilton type of signing for us if we use him the right way (and I loved the Mike Hilton addition when it happened a few years ago; I was on Hilton's bandwagon very early on, singing his praises throughout the non-contact OTA's and minicamp before he even made his impressive showing in Latrobe during training camp).

    Steelers sign Casey Sayles
    By Charean Williams | Apr 9, 2019, 9:08 PM EDT

    The Steelers have added another former Alliance of American Football player, announcing Tuesday they signed defensive lineman Casey Sayles to a one-year deal.

    Sayles was with the team in camp last summer.

    He becomes the sixth player from the defunct league to sign with the Steelers, joining center J.C. Hassenauer, defensive backs Jack Tocho and Kameron Kelly, linebacker J.T. Jones and defensive tackle Winston Craig. The Panthers also have signed six former AAF players. The Dolphins lead with seven.

    Sayles, 23, played for the Birmingham Iron.

    He originally signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent from Ohio in 2017. The Rams cut him out of the preseason.

    The Steelers cut him before the start of the 2018 season.
