In addition to signing wide receiver Cobi Hamilton on Friday, the Pittsburgh Steelers also announced that undrafted rookie tight end Michael Cooper was signed to the 90-man roster.
Cooper, who played his college football at Indiana, had 17 receptions for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2015.
In order to make room for Cooper on the roster, tight end Jake Phillips was waived. It is unclear if Phillips was injured as he only practiced one day with the team after being signed earlier this week.
At his pro day earlier this year, Cooper measured in at 6047, 259-pounds. He ran the 40 in 4.88-seconds and did 21 reps on the bench.
We have signed free agent WR Cobi Hamilton and free agent TE Michael Cooper.
