The Pittsburgh Steelers signed undrafted Boston College wide receiver Shakim Phillips to their offseason roster on Tuesday.
Phillips, who measured in at his March pro-day at 6-1, 204-pounds, caught 74 passes for 1,096 yards and eight touchdowns during his college career. 60 of those catches came at Connecticut as Phillips transferred there after his 2010 freshman season. He did, however transfer back to Boston College after the 2013 season.
At his pro-day, Phillips reportedly ran a 4.45 second 40-yard-dash and posted a vertical jump of 39-inches to go along with a 10’07” broad jump. He also posted a 4.33 second time in the 20-yard-shuttle.
Phillips is the second undrafted player out of Boston College to sign with the team as quarterback turned wide receiver Tyler Murphy was also signed immediately after the 2015 NFL Draft
