Steelers Sign LB So’oto And RB Poole To Futures Contracts

The Steelers announced a couple roster moves today. LB Vic So’oto and RB Tauren Poole have been signed to reserve/futures contracts.

So’oto played college ball at BYU, and was signed in 2011 as an undrafted free agent by the Green Bay Packers. The 6’3″, 263 linebacker was released by the Packers a year later, and went on to spend time on practice squads with the Raiders, Packers, and Redskins. He was with the Cardinals last season before being sent to IR after suffering from a chest injury.

Tauren Poole was originally signed by the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2012. Poole measures in at 5’11” and 213 pounds. He spent the 2012 season on the Panthers IR due to a rib injury. The former Vols running back was released by the Panthers after an underwhelming 2013 training camp, and was later signed to the Colts practice squad.
