Due to all the injuries at the cornerback position the Pittsburgh Steelers were down to just six healthy players at the position as they prepare to resume practice on Wednesday. They now have seven as the team announced Wednesday morning that they have signed cornerback Devin Smith along with running back Alvester Alexander.
To make room on the roster the team waived undrafted free agents running back Curtis McNeal and defensive end Cordian Hagans.
Smith, an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin, was waived recently by the Dallas Cowboys after signing with them back in April. He measured in at his Pro Day at 5\’10” and weighed 182 pounds.
Alexander was originally signed by the Chicago Bears in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming and has since been on the practice squad of both the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans.
