Steelers Waive LS Luke Ingram; Claim CB Buddy Jackson Off Waivers

Every year the Pittsburgh Steelers bring in a long snapper to challenge veteran Greg Warren for his job and every year Warren discards them to the side. This year it was no different for Warren as the Steelers waived undrafted free agent long snapper Luke Ingram on Thursday.

Ingram had a stellar career at Hawaii and I thought he might be the one to finally knock Warren off the top of the long snapping mountain.

The Steelers replaced Ingram on the roster by claiming cornerback Buddy Jackson off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jackson signed with the Chiefs in the middle of May after he previously spent time with the New York Giants, Washington Redskins and the Indianapolis Colts after playing his college ball at the University of Pittsburgh.

The addition of yet another cornerback is not a big surprise as Cortez Allen (knee), Terry Hawthorne (knee) and DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring) are all currently sidelined with injuries.
