We have Pittsburgh West and Pittsburgh South. And now, we may have a candidate for Pittsburgh (further) East. The New York Giants have signed their second former Pittsburgh Steeler of the offseason, signing OT Byron Stingily.
Giants have announced signings of LB Kelvin Sheppard and RB Bobby Rainey. Also announce they have signed OT Byron Stingily.

Stingily was arguably the biggest afterthought on the team’s roster last season. Signed following Kelvin Beachum’s season-ending torn ACL, he was originally thought to become the swing tackle, but was never even active for a game.
Chris Hubbard kept his spot on the roster and became the de facto backup to Alejandro Villanueva and Marcus Gilbert. It was not disappointing or that surprising, but given Stingily’s connection with Mike Munchak, I didn’t expect Stingily’s time in Pittsburgh to be so quiet.
Out of Louisville and drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2011, the Giants make this Stingily’s third team. New York also scooped up fullback Will Johnson signed a two-year deal on April 4th.
