The Steelers have claimed former Cowboys cornerback B.W. Webb off of waivers. Webb was waived yesterday by Dallas. The 5’11” cornerback was drafted by the Cowboys in the 4th round of the 2013 draft. This move is very likely related to Brice McCain getting injured last night. McCain left the game early with a groin injury. Webb is a capable special teamer. The Steelers are familiar with Webb. They hosted him for a pre-draft visit last year.
To make room on the 75 man roster, the Steelers have placed LB Jordan Zumwalt on injured reserve. This move doesn’t come as a surprise, in fact, I thought the team was going to do it last week. Zumwalt was sidelined throughout the summer with a groin injury and only appeared in the first of the 4 preseason matches.
