The Pittsburgh Steelers have added yet another player to their offseason roster on Wednesday as linebacker Brian Rolle has been signed on to a reserve/future contact.
Rolle was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, where he was a two-year starter at middle linebacker.
During his rookie season Rolle started 13 games for the Eagles and recorded 63 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 forced fumble. In 2012 Rolle played in the first four games with the Eagles before being released on Oct. 2 after recording only 4 tackles.
Rolle had starting training camp with the Eagles this past season as the starter but lost the job to Akeem Jordan after the third preseason game.
Rolle is related to Antrel Rolle, Samari Rolle, and Myron Rolle, who was with the Steelers last offseason.
