It’s been a few weeks now since the Pittsburgh Steelers signed their original 10 undrafted free agents to contracts and I now have some signing bonus related to five of those players to pass along courtesy of former NFL agent Joel Corry.
We’ll start off with running back Christian Powell, who has already been released by the Steelers following the team’s rookie mini-camp. According to Corry, the Steelers gave the Colorado product a $5000 signing bonus so that amount is now dead money following his release.
As far as a few other undrafted free agent players who were signed by the Steelers, linebacker Tyriq McCord was given a $7000 signing bonus. Tight ends David Reeves and Jay Rome were both given $2000 signing bonuses while center Quinton Schooley was given a $4000 signing bonus. Those four players were all signed to three-year contracts that included base salaries of $450,000, $540,000, and $630,000.
While we have yet to hear what the signing bonuses are that may have been given to defensive end Johnny Maxey, punter Will Monday, defensive end Giorgio Newberry, wide receiver Canaan Severin and defensive tackle Devaunte Sigler, we do know that their three-year base salaries will each total out at $1.62 million.
The Steelers also signed cornerback Donald Washington to a one-year, $675,000 deal and running back Cameron Stingily to a one-year, $450,000 deal after the team’s mini-camp concluded.
