Steelers Worked Out Two Safeties And A Running Back Last Friday

Bouagnon rushed for 2,911 yards and 31 touchdowns on 600 carries in 45 games over four seasons at at Northern Illinois and had 44 receptions for 368 yards and three touchdowns.

Jerome was signed originally by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Saint Francis University this past May. After making the 49ers initial 53-man roster, he was waived by the team this past October. During his four-year career at Saint Francis, Jerome totaled 252 tackles, 47 passes defensed, 14 tackles for loss, five sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also recorded 18 interceptions.

As for Williamson, he originally signed with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He was waived injured by the Colts that following August with a knee injury. He spent the first week of the 2017 season on the Colts practice squad and then was released. Williamson played in 47 games at Vanderbilt and started 19 of them, recording 135 tackles, six tackles for loss, a sack, eight passes defensed, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, and an interception.
