TE Reggie Kelly To Visit The Steelers Today
Pittsburgh (KDKA)- The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to look to add veteran depth to the tight end position.
There are reports that the team will talk with free agent TE Reggie Kelly today in Latrobe.
Last week, they signed veteran John Gilmore but they obviously would like to add another player to the tight end competition.
In 2010, Kelly played for the Cincinnati Bengals, where he caught 10 passes for just 42 yards.
Prior to that, Kelly spent the entire 2009 season on the Bengals injured reserve list after rupturing his Achilles’ tendon.
Before the Bengals, Kelly spent four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him in the 2nd round of the 1999 draft.
Last week, the team talked with tight end Daniel Graham, but had no salary cap room to sign him.
That isn’t a problem now as Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the team is currently $3 million under the cap.
Here are some notes from Steelers camp on Monday:
*Wide receiver Hines Ward practiced for the first time after being activated from the PUP List (thumb)
*Center Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) returned to practice and told us that he plans on playing Friday in Washington. He also said that this ankle sprain was the same one he injured late last season.
*Guard Ramon Foster missed a second straight practice. Also missing practice were cornerback Bryant McFadden, cornerback Crezdon Butler, cornerback Curtis Brown, cornerback Cortez Allen, guard Chris Kemoeatu (knee) and linebacker James Harrison.
*Wide Receiver Limas Sweed couldn’t make it thru the entire practice because of a shoulder sprain.
*The first team offensive line was: LT Tony Hills, LG Doug Legursky, C Maurkice Pouncey, RG Chris Scott and RT Kyle Jolley.
*Former Pitt guard John Malecki received alot of work as the third team center even though he’s never played there before.
