Steelers Sign DE Hall Davis To The Practice Squad; Release RB Ray Graham

Due to Pittsburgh Steelers currently having a few players banged up on their defensive line, the team signed defensive end Hall Davis to their practice squad on Tuesday.

Davis was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Louisiana-Lafayette. He has bounced around on several teams and dressed for two games with the Cleveland Browns in 2012. He spent 10 weeks on the practice squad of the Tennessee Titans back in 2010, before being signed to their active roster where he appeared in one game.

A two-year starter at Louisiana-Lafayette, Hall totaled three sacks and one interception in 12 games as a senior.

To make room for Hall on the practice squad, the Steelers released running back Ray Graham. Graham, a University of Pittsburgh product, had only been with the team since Nov. 19th.

The Steelers currently have Steve McLendon, Brett Keisel and Ziggy Hood all nursing injuries and obviously needed another practice body this week as they prepare to play the Cincinnati Bengals this coming Sunday night.

    As much crazy smack as you talk here, you would think you would have known this.

    I will down vote my own comment to save you all some time. It was worth it, however.

    Hoping they re-sign him this offseason, he looked good before the injury, he would be cheap considering he’s coming off of major injury, maybe another 1yr minimum deal

  • James Kling

    Shame, I was hoping Graham would be a developmental gem next year. Hope we can sign him back.

  • Lucus Rodriguez

    Id like to see Bell Dwyer and LSH. They could run some two back sets on third and 4-6 with LSH and Bell in the gun with Ben. I really hope they go into these last three games trying to win but also trying a lot of new things out and seeing what works.

  • steeltown

    Tomlin said he’s going with his best players.. but I would much rather see some platooning at certain positions, get Wheaton and Moye on the field in 4 or 5 wide sets, put Fangupo in there in some base defense packages etc. We need more tape on these guys.

    Agree see if we have something in Moye and if we don’t draft a tall WR in the late rounds. Id much rather see Wheaton than Saunders at this point. And maybe move Jarvis to the inside in base packages. So if we do somehow keep Worilds we can get the most talent on the field. Jarvis is great at bull rushing the inside of a blockers shoulder. that would work great when his main job isn’t setting the edge.
