Steelers Awarded CB Deion Belue Off Of Waivers

The Steelers have been awarded Deion Belue off of waivers according to the NFL transaction sheet and various reporters. Belue was signed by the Dophins earlier this month as an undrafted free agent. He was waived by the Dolphins yesterday.

The former Alabama cornerback was productive in 2012, but was limited for much of 2013 with a foot injury. In 2012, he totalled 40 tackles, 9 passes broken up, and 3 interceptions. (In 2013, it was 20 tackles and 1 interception.)

He measured in at 5’11, 182 lbs at the NFL Scouting Combine, but did not participate in the 40 yard dash or other agility tests. Since the Steelers roster is currently full, I would expect the team to announce the release of a player in the very near future to make room for his addition.
