Steelers Sign Practice Squad Players McCoy, Malecki & Bryant To Future Contracts

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed practice squad players, tight end Jamie McCoy, offensive lineman John Malecki and defensive end Corbin Bryant to three-year futures contracts according to a source.

All three players were with the Steelers at training camp this past season and started the 2011 season on the practice squad. Bryant saw the Steelers 53 man roster for one game against the Arizona Cardinals in week 7, but was released the next week and re-signed back to practice squad after he cleared waivers.

Both McCoy and Malecki were released from the practice squad at different times this year. McCoy was signed back in the middle of September and Malecki was signed back in late December after being waived in early October.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Can anyone explain or point me towards a good explanation of what a “futures” contract means?

    New league year does not start until March. Thus the contract is a futures contract. These are 3 year deals with no signing bonuses.
