The Steelers signed six players today to Reserve/Future contracts for the 2012 season.

Pittsburgh signed QB Troy Smith, who began his career with the Baltimore Ravens (2007-09) before playing for the San Francisco 49ers (2010) and the Omaha Nighthawks (2011) of the United Football League.

Pittsburgh also signed four wide receivers to the offseason roster that all have spent time with other NFL teams. WR Tyler Beiler started his career as a rookie free agent with the San Francisco 49ers last July and then spent time on the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad during the 2011 regular season. WR David Gilreath began his career with the Indianapolis Colts as a rookie free agent in 2011 and was on the practice squads of the Colts, St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills. WR Derrick Williams played for the Detroit Lions from 2009-10 before being released at the end of the 2011 training camp. WR Jimmy Young spent the 2011 training camp with the Chicago Bears before being released.
