The Pittsburgh Steelers made a roster move on Friday according to Ed Bouchette on Twitter as they have released tackle Trevis Turner and signed cornerback Andre Freeman to take his place on the 90 man roster.
Turner was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent last year out of Abilene Christian. While Turner did not make the 53 man roster out of training camp last season, he did make the Steelers practice squad. Following the season the Steelers signed him back to the offseason roster on a futures contract. The 6-foot-7, 330-pound Turner is the father of three sets of fraternal twins.
The Steelers had signed Kyle Jolly earlier in the week, so the number of tackles on the roster is the same at the end of the week as it was at the beginning.
Freeman is a 5 foot, 11 inch cornerback out of Slippery Rock. At his pro day in March he ran a 4.47 40 time and a 4.14 short shuttle time. He had a vertical jump of 35 inches to go along with a 10\’05” broad jump. He put up 225 pounds on the bench 14 times.
