Tight end Rob Blanchflower has been waived/injured to make room for tight end Ray Hamilton, who the Steelers claimed off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys. Hamilton, out of Iowa, had been acquired by the Cowboys on May 9th as an undrafted rookie. During his 4 years at Iowa, he caught for 305 yards in 29 passes.
Blanchflower was a seventh round draft pick by the Steelers in the 2014 NFL Draft. I thought Blanchflower was a steal coming out of UMASS, but he just couldn’t escape the injury bug.
If he should clear waivers he would find himself on the Steelers injured reserve list. However, from there he’ll likely be waived with an injury settlement.
