The Pittsburgh Steelers brought free agent safety Jordan Dangerfield in for a workout Monday and on Tuesday the Towson product announced on Twitter that he has signed with the team.

The Steelers have not announced the move yet, but that figures to happen in the next 12 hours. It’s also unclear as to whether or not Dangerfield was signed to the 53 man roster or the 10-man practice squad. Either way, the team will have to release a player to make room for him.
Dangerfield, a former undrafted free agent who was with the Steelers throughout most of the offseason and training camp, had been playing in the FXFL with the Brooklyn Bolts before being signed.
In the three preseason games that Dangerfield played with the Steelers earlier this year, he recorded seven total tackles.
Dangerfield was needed due to the recent injuries suffered by safeties Troy Polamalu, Shamarko Thomas and Ross Ventrone. Polamalu and Thomas were ruled out Tuesday for the upcoming Sunday game against the New York Jets while Ventrone enters the week listed as questionable.
