The Steelers signed wide receiver Danny Coale to a reserve/futures contract today, reports Brian McIntyre (via Twitter). It’s the latest in a handful of new additions for the Steelers, who also signed linebacker Vic So’oto and running back Tauren Poole to futures deals this week.
A fifth-round pick in 2012, Coale tore his ACL during his first NFL season, and was on and off the Cowboys’ practice squad up until this past September, when he was released. The former Virginia Tech receiver briefly joined the Colts’ practice squad after being cut by Dallas, and worked out for the Giants in October, but has yet to record an NFL regular-season catch.
Coale caught 60 passes for 904 yards in his final college season with the Hokies.
