Steelers Waive CB DeMarcus Van Dyke From Injured Reserve With A Settlement

The Pittsburgh Steelers made several transactions on Saturday as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players, but one insignificant move went unreported.

According to the official NFL transaction release from Friday, the Steelers waived cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

Van Dyke, who the Steelers signed last year at about this time, was waived injured last week with a hamstring injury that he suffered during training camp.

Depending on the terms of the settlement, the former third-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders, can now begin looking for work once he is fully healthy, so there is a chance Van Dyke might find a home on a roster over the course of the season

Van Dyke is no longer eligible for a practice squad, so a team that signs him must keep him on their 53 man roster.
