The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to add players from the recently suspended AAF league. On Monday, former San Diego Fleet defensive back/wide receiver Kameron Kelly indicated on Twitter that he has now signed with the Steelers.
Kelly, who played his college football at San Diego State, went undrafted last year and wound up signing immediately with the Dallas Cowboys as a as a free agent but was ultimately waived by them prior to the preseason starting.
Kelly made the roster of the Fleet this year initially as a wide receiver and that’s probably not that big of a surprise as he reportedly played wide receiver, defensive back, and quarterback in high school. However, it’s worth noting that Kelly was moved to the defensive side of the football by the Fleet by the team’s third game due to injuries. That move to cornerback was a profitable one for Kelly.
In the 6 games that Kelly played on the defensive side of the football for the Fleet, he was credited with 14 total tackles, 9 passes defensed and 4 interceptions. 3 of those interceptions came against the Salt Lake Stallions in Week 5 and you can watch the replays of those below.
At the 2018 scouting combine, Kelly reportedly measured in at 6015, 204-pounds with 31 3/4-inch arms and 8 7/8-inch hands. He ran his 40-yard dash in 4.66-seconds, had a verycle jump of 33.0-inches and a broad jump of 10’0″. His short shuttle time was 4.28-seconds and his 3-cone-time was 6.94-seconds.
In his for seasons at San Diego State, Kelly registered 10 interceptions, 165 total tackles and 17 total pass breakups.
Below is the scouting profile of Kelly that Alex Kozora did on Kelly a year ago.
