The Steelers have officially signed a pair of players to reserve/futures contracts, the team announced today (Twitter link). Linebacker Vic So’oto and running back Tauren Poole have inked deals with the Steelers for next season.
So’oto spent time with the Cardinals in 2013 before finishing the season on the Saints’ practice squad. Poole also bounced around a little, spending time on the Panthers’ and Colts’ practice squads this past season.
So’oto, Poole, and other players who didn’t finish the 2013 season on an active roster are eligible to sign futures contracts before free agency begins in March. While the deals don’t come with any guarantees for 2014, they could provide an opportunity to compete for a roster spot.
