The Pittsburgh Steelers made a few roster moves on Saturday and it included them signing a quarterback and a guard.
Signed to the 90-man roster were quarterback Bryn Renner and guard Antoine Everett. To make room for those players the team waived running back Christian Powell in addition to waiving injured center Valerian Ume-Ezeoke.
Renner entered the league originally in 2014 with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina. He has since spent time on the rosters of the Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and San Diego Chargers.
During the 2015 preseason, Renner completed 43 of his 65 pass attempts for 409 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. During his college career, Renner competed 66.5% of his attempted passes for 8,221 yards with 64 touchdowns versus 25 interceptions. He measured in at 6-3, 228-pounds at the 2014 Scouting Combine.
Everett was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year as an undrafted free agent out of McNeese State. After playing tackle in college, he was projected to play guard at the NFL level and was originally projected as a late-round draft pick before he broke a bone in his foot at his 2015 March pro day. He spent most of his rookie season on the Buccaneers practice squad.
Powell, who was waived on Saturday, did not play in Thursdays preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The same went for Ume-Ezeoke as he sat out the game with an injury.
