The Steelers signed Tight End Nathan Overbay today. Mike Farrell was released to make room on the roster. Overbay was an UDFA out of Eastern Washington in 2010. Originally signed by the Broncos, he’s spent most of his career on and off the Detroit Lions’ practice squad. Overbay is 6’5, and is reportedly 259 lbs. He is the nephew of former Pirates infielder Lyle Overbay.
One would have to assume that this signing, coupled with Coach Tomlin’s lack of an update for Spaeth this morning, indicates that Spaeth’s injury will be sidelining him for a while. That’s just speculation of course. Hopefully, we get more details on Spaeth’s injury later today.
