Now that Pittsburgh Steelers safeties Troy Polamalu, Shamarko Thomas and Ross Ventrone are all currently dealing with injuries, the team looks like they could be on the verge of signing safety Jordan Dangerfield to either their 53 man roster or practice squad.
According to NFLDraftDiamonds.com, Dangerfield, who was with the Steelers during the preseason, was brought in Monday for a workout. The Towson product has been playing with the Brooklyn Bolts in the FXFL and was recently given the Nivea play of the week award on Halloween when he caused a fumble.
Dangerfield was originally signed by the Steelers back in January. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills back in 2013.
Signing Dangerfield would make a lot of sense as he should be able to help out on special teams with Thomas and Ventrone both currently dealing with hamstring injuries. The Steelers also lost Polamalu to a knee sprain Sunday night and we still don’t know the severity of his injury and whether or not he’ll be sidelined for an extended amount of time.
With it looking like Polamalu might be out for at least the Week 10 game against the New York Jets, veteran Will Allen will more than likely start in his place.
