Steelers Sign QB Dustin Vaughan To Futures Deal

On the heels of the news of the Pittsburgh Steelers signing WR Levi Norwood, the team has also signed QB Dustin Vaughan to a futures contract. PennLive’s Jacob Klinger reported the news, per Vaughan’s agent.

Like practically all the players signed to futures deals, Vaughan was brought in for a workout in early January. He was a star at Division II West Texas A&M, throwing for over 5400 yards and 53 touchdowns his senior year. He has spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills. He offers a prototypical build at 6’4 7/8 235 pounds. He becomes the 16th Steelers given a futures contract.

It’s a plus to have a QB who will be eligible for rookie minicamp who has spent time with the team. Often times, if a QB is brought in immediately after the draft for minicamp, it produces a much sloppier session and makes it that much tougher to evaluate the group of guys brought in. The Steelers did similar with a slightly more high-profile player last year in Tajh Boyd.
