According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pittsburgh Steelers signed former cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke after working him out on Tuesday.
Van Dyke who suffered a serious hamstring injury early on in training camp, failed to play during the preseason and as a result he was waived injured prior to the start of the regular season. Once he reverted back to the Steelers injured reserve list Van Dyke was waived from in late August with an injury settlement.
Van Dyke was on the Steelers 53 man roster last season but only played on special teams. He ended the season on the injured reserve list after suffering a shoulder injury early in the game against the Dallas Cowboys.
We have yet to learn what the corresponding move is, but it might include Curtis Brown.
