Steelers Waive LB Kion Wilson, Sign CB Lew Toler
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a roster move on Thursday prior to the team reporting to training camp.
Waived on Thursday was linebacker Kion Wilson, who started the 2013 season on the Steelers 53 man roster. He was originally signed by the Steelers in January of 2013 and recorded 12 total tackles in the seven games that played in.
To fill Wilson’s spot on the 90 man roster, the Steelers signed former Rutgers cornerback Lew Toler, who went undrafted back in May. He attended the Steelers rookie mini camp as an unsigned player.
Toler arrived at Rutgers as a graduate transfer from Western Michigan prior to the 2013 season and became a starting cornerback in the second game of the season. Toler’s 2013 season came to an end, however, after he suffered a broken left arm against Louisville on Oct. 10.
At his Pro Day back in March, Toler measured in at 5095 and weighed 190 pounds. He reportedly ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.6 seconds.
