The Pittsburgh Steelers announced a roster move prior to training camp, signing offensive tackle Kelvin Palmer. Safety Jordan Dangerfield was released in a corresponding move.
Palmer went undrafted in 2014 before spending some time with the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. He came into Baylor’s Pro Day at 6’3/4, 302 pounds. He started one year at Baylor, receiving ten starts at right tackle and three on the left.
Our own Jon Ledyard offered a short scouting report on him.
Swing capabilities, power scheme fit. Can maul some in run game, and has good linear quicks. Play DL in high school, switched to OL as RS FR

Predictably, the Steelers released a safety, their heaviest position with ten players. Dangerfield was in camp with the team in 2014, praised by fans for his hard-hitting style.
The team reports to training camp tomorrow.
