Steelers Sign 11 Players To Reserve/Future Contracts

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed 11 players to Reserve/Future contracts on Monday.

The list of 11 players includes eight players who ended the season on the Steelers practice squad. Those eight players are running back Brandon Brown-Dukes, cornerback Brandon Dixon, tackle Matt Feiler, safety Jacob Hagen, cornerback Mike Hilton, running back Gus Johnson, tackle Keavon Milton, and wide receiver Marcus Tucker.

Running back Dreamius Smith, who ended the season on the Steelers practice squad injured list, was also re-signed as was running back Karlos Williams, who ended the season on the suspended list.

Williams, by the way, is listed Monday as having his suspension lifted by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The 11th player signed was wide receiver Dez Stewart, who played his college football at Ohio Dominican University. Stewart recorded 195 career receptions for 3,193 yards with 25 receiving touchdowns in 40 career games from 2011-2015. The 6-foot-2, 200 pounder also added 18 career rushing attempts for 184 yards with one rushing touchdowns.

Stewart entered the league in 2016 as undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and has since spent time with the Washington Redskins and most recently the Green Bay Packers.
