The Pittsburgh Steelers officially made several future contract signings official today that I had previously reported along with a few players that had not yet surfaced. Officially signed now to future contracts are quarterback Troy Smith, cornerback Walter McFadden, wide receiver Tyler Beiler, wide receiver David Gilreath, wide receiver Derrick Williams and wide receiver Jimmy Young.
the two new names on this list that were not yet reported are McFadden and Gilreath. McFadden spent a portion of 2010 and 2011 with the Oakland Raiders and on the practice squads of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cincinnati Bengals in 2001 as well. He is the younger brother of Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden. Gilreath started out as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts last season and spent time on the practice squad of the Colts, St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills.
