Steelers Sign S Jordan Dangerfield To A Futures Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers also added a defensive back to their offseason roster on Friday as former Towson safety Jordan Dangerfield has signed a reserve/futures contract.

Dangerfield was originally signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent but was waived prior to the start of the regular season. He was a two-time All-Colonial Athletic Association first team selection and led his team in tackles as a junior with 93 and fourth on the team in 2012 with 69. He also recorded six pass breakups and forced one fumble in his final season.

During his college career that included one year at Hofstra, Dangerfield totaled 281 tackles with 165 of them being solos. He was named Towson’s Defensive Player of the Year in his junior and senior years.

    I’m curious if they are going to bring back Demarcus Van Dyke this offseason?

    Not if he is related to Rodney in any way. LOL!!!

    You beat me to it!

    I know. I went to a practice at Latrobe and tried to get Steelers to sign my terrible towel. I ended up with Demarcus Van Dyke, Curtis Brown and Drew butler as the only people I could get. Now I basically have to burn the thing. Now I’m just glad I didn’t splurge on that Zoltan Mesko jersey….

    Jordan loves to hit and tackle, which we need. He has a lot of fun out there and will fit right in to our D unit. It is good that he likes to play special teams, which is always a plus to making the active roster on Gameday.

    thats the worst.. LOL .. thank godness i was more successful in getin autographs.. LOL

    He seems to be able to consistently shed blockers (even big o-linemen) and make tackles, things not too many DB’s seem to do these days. I love his desire to make impact tackles, and he does create turnovers that way, but in coverage he might be better served to go for the ball a bit more, as he showed decent hands and closing speed, and getting turnovers is the biggest impact a defender can have on the game. I like him though, and I think he could fit into our defense… If he can learn it!!!!

    Not bad

  • TheBurgh805

    No he gone already

  • DrakePirate

    not good !

    That time coupled with his level of competition probably hurt him coming out. He looked really “football fast” with great instincts. Would love to see what he can do. He might really prove to be a steal. I really thought Golden would be able to eventually step in. Will Allen’s resigning and late season success told me the team doesn’t see it.

  • Patrick Reid

    Now thats funny!


    If only it also had Limas Sweed, I would start the bidding at $50.

    Aggie Pride!

    guess not , he at KC now.
