Everett Golson

Minor NFL Transactions: 6/27/16

We’ll keep track of today’s minor moves here:

  • The Steelers signed running back Brandon Johnson to fill the roster spot vacated when kicker Shaun Suisham was released, the club announced. Johnson, who walked on at Penn State, is now taking a similar route to the NFL, were he’ll sign as a undrafted free agent after trying out at Pittsburgh’s minicamp last month. He managed only four carries during his senior season, and mainly served as a special teams player.
  • After auditioning for both the Eagles and Colts during rookie minicamps, former Florida State quarterback Everett Golson will join the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the team announced. Golson completed more than 67% of his passes last year for the Seminoles, but his more prolific collegiate activity came with Notre Dame in 2012, when he helped lead the Fighting Irish to the National Championship game.
