Steelers Sign CB Greg Ducre To A Reserve/Futures Contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers have added another player to their offseason roster as cornerback Greg Ducre was signed to a Reserve/Futures contract on Monday.

Ducre, who played his college football at the University of Washington, entered the league originally in 2014 with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent.

In his four years at Washington, Ducre registered 94 total tackles and 4 interceptions. At his 2014 pro day, Ducre reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in 4.34 and 4.32 seconds and had a 35-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-6 broad jump. He also reportedly ran the short shuttle in 4.00 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.56 seconds.

During his rookie season, Ducre spent five games on the roster of the Washington Redskins after they signed him off the Chargers practice squad. In 2015, Ducre spent four games on the Chargers roster.

Two of the 8 total tackles that Ducre registered with the Chargers during the 2015 season came on special teams.

  • Steelers12

    he will have a hard time making roster

  • The Chin

    Ex-chargers. Pfffft

  • Doug Sawyer

    mouth farts are so 1850’s

  • The Chin

    It’s Cam Thomas and LGreen flatulent

  • falconsaftey43

    Fast, at least he has something to work with.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Camp body?

  • Rotten Sircus

    I’m for whatever help we can get but I don’t think he’s going to make the roster.

  • Zarbor

    Looks like someone likes shopping at the Chargers. Well, one of the things you can’t coach is speed….but the question is can he play?….Did some one say practice squad?

  • John Mazza

    yeah i would assume. not saying here that he was on a roster last year. see what he has to work with i guess

  • Mark

    We need fast people who can tackle and stay close to receivers to at least bat a ball down!

  • LucasY59

    most futures contract guys are just camp bodies

  • LucasY59

    most likely, but at least he has some speed (even though coverage is probably more important, but speed can (sometimes) help with that)

  • Jim Foles

    Good stats.. Must be that he is 5′ 7″

  • Douglas Andrews

    Speed is great but the Steelers need physical Cb’s. Who knows maybe they can make him a Cockrell upgrade

  • TrappenWeisseGuy ;

    Yes, but the bar to pass is not particularly high on this team.

  • Stephen

    Yancy Thigpen came from the Chargers, maybe good luck strikes again

  • francesco

    Cockrell upgrade is anyone on any team’s practice squad.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    5’10”

  • Jaybird

    I wonder if Charger fans call us “San Diego East” .

  • Rocksolid20

    You beat me to it .

  • Applebite

    Not enough clout to hold it down.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’m rooting for Justin Gilbert. Cockrell could be a good #3 CB but not a starter. Cockrell was so vulnerable that teams didn’t throw much at Artie the rook instead they went after Cockrell. That speaks volumes

  • Reggie Cunningham

    Why haven’t this team produce any cb that get a lot of take away ? Maybe we do need a new Def coordinator

  • Not any more, lol

  • Maybe they are looking at a guy who can play slot possibly

  • Good call

  • With that kind of speed, maybe they are looking at a kid who could possibly play slot if need be. Long long way to go before he reaches that, if he even could, but it seems like that’s what they had in mind when signing him.

  • OIF3gunner

    Did I miss how tall he is?

  • OIF3gunner

    A lot of starters start of as “camp bodies”.

  • Mark Tercsak

    Chuck the GREAT, always build from withIn

  • Steelers12

    yeah but i look for us to draft a CB or two and Golson is coming back

    The Quality Man-On CBs
    They have a first round pick in Justin Gilbert and they don’t know how to use him; why do they even pick CBs? They don’t have a Coach that knows how to train a CB. The 5 S or CBs they had last year were all untrained rookies or trained by other than Steelers Coaches. Steelers DB Coaches have never trained a decent CB.Last year the untrained S & DBs upgraded their Rankings from 31st to 18th by playing an aggressive man2Man D during their winning Streak. Then Steelers Coaching took over for the Championship game and played the typical Obsolete Prevent D. which Coaches call a zone. 4 years since they got here Steelers best record was not in the top 25! They live in the Cellar.

    I’m not envisioning another Ross Cockrell, but I am excited about adding competition to the CBs! Especially in the slot!
