G Ryan Lee Makes Steelers Practice Squad As Does LB Marshall McFadden

Undrafted free agent left guard Ryan Lee has announced via Twitter that he will be signed to the Pittsburgh Steelers 8 man practice squad today.

Lee, who played his college ball at Furman, had an exceptional preseason at the left guard spot, where he saw most of his action late in games.

Lee looked to be “country strong” and well aware of his assignments and played through the whistle on every snap.

The other 7 players will be announced shortly, but a source has informed me that linebacker Marshall McFadden also will make the 8 man group of practice squad players.

    McFadden was one of these guys that seemed to be always around the ball whether on defense of ST…the injury bug did help him though!!!

    I’m not doubting Lee had “exceptional preseason” & showed functional football strength. But Beachum did the opposite of that, therefore I’m curious why Beachum was protected on the 53 but Lee is on PS where not protected from being plucked by other teams.

    I will give several reasons
    1. We used a draft pick on him
    2. We believe he has position flexibility
    3. Kevin Colbert likes him…lol
