Source: Steelers Will Sign Former TCU WR Jimmy Young To Futures Contract At End Of Season


We are starting to hear a few names that have visited the Pittsburgh Steelers facility for workouts as they prepare to expand their roster to 80 players for the offseason. None of these future contracts will be announced until after the season, but a source says that former TCU wide receiver Jimmy Young will be one of the early names to be announced as signing a future contract.

Young measured in at 6\'0" at the 2011 NFL combine and weighed 204 lbs. His arms measured 31 3/8 and his hands measured 9 inches. He ran an unofficial 40 time of 4.50, had a vertical of 37 inches and a broad jump of 09\'07". His unofficial 20 yard shuttle time was 4.18.

Young was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent following the 2011 draft, but was waived by the Bears prior to the start of the season. Young played at TCU with current Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.

Here is a link to his combine workout and below is a highlight video.
