Scott Brown is reporting via Twitter that the Steelers have signed former University of Pittsburgh tight end Dorin Dickerson to the practice squad today. Dickerson worked out for the Steelers last week after being released by the Texan during the final roster cuts. The Texans drafted Dickerson in the 7th round of the 2010 draft and worked to convert him to wide receiver.
It is unknown if the Steelers plan to use Dickerson as a tight end or a wide receiver going forward. To make room on the practice squad tight end Jamie McCoy was released.
