The Steelers announce that they have signed seven players from their practice squad to reserve/futures contracts.
RB Alvester Alexander, WR Justin Brown, OL Bryant Browning, OL Chris Hubbard, WR Kashif Moore, DB Ross Ventrone, and LB Kion Wilson.
Reserve/Futures contracts are just that- contracts signed for the future league year. Players who are not currently on an active roster can be signed to these deals so they can be retained for next year. The 2014 league year begins at 4:00 pm March 11, 2014.
