Steelers Sign WR Devon Wylie To Practice Squad
The Pittsburgh Steelers filled the open spot on their practice Wednesday following the Tuesday promotion of cornerback Isaiah Green to the 53 man roster by signing wide receiver Devon Wylie.
Wylie was originally selected 107th overall, in the 4th round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs out of Fresno State and was most recently a member of the Arizona Cardinals practice squad.
During his rookie season with the Chiefs, Wylie saw action in six games where he caught six passes for 53 yards. In addition, he also returned five punts for 26 yards and nine kickoffs for another 191 yards while with the Chiefs.
The Steelers are still without the services of rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who continues to work his way back from a pinky injury, so Wylie will likely help in taking a few reps during practice.
