Steelers News & Transactions Report: Steelers to Meet Safety Tyson Graham From AAF Published 2 months ago on April 5, 2019 By Donnie Druin 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment EmailAfter a wild week in the AAF where football operations were shut down for the rest of the league’s season, only two players thus far have shined bright enough to earn themselves a shot at playing in the NFL, as Arizona Hotshots WR Rashad Ross and Orlando Apollos CB Keith Reaser have found new homes in the league. You might be able to add Tyson Graham to that list. According to initial reports from nfldraftdiamonds.com, Graham is scheduled to fly into Pittsburgh on Friday and meet with the Steelers. Graham, who went undrafted in 2017 out of South Dakota, fought his way to two seasons worth of training camps with the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons before being waived. Graham then signed with the AAF’s Atlanta Legends, leading the team in tackles (37, good enough for fourth-best in the league) while adding an interception, forced fumble and .5 of a sack to his eight week resume before the league shutdown. Pressure from KeShun Freeman forces Zach Mettenberger out of the pocket.

Does this change the way the Steelers look at the safety position in the draft? Mention Steelers Now and save $10! Graham would be brought in as a potential depth player to add to the practice squad, or even the 53 man roster going into the regular season. In a safety depth chart that features Marcus Allen, Jordan Dangerfield and Nat Berhe behind the current starters in Terrell Edmunds/Sean Davis, Graham will have to show up ready to work when training camp rolls around. Graham, 25 years old, has yet to play a meaningful snap at the professional level. Yet he’s already shown what he’s capable of doing, if given the opportunity. 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment Email Related Topics:AAFAtlanta LegendsfeaturedPittsburgh SteelersTyson Graham Up Next Steelers Release 2019 Preseason Schedule Don't Miss Steelers Officially Release S Morgan Burnett Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Steelers Made Waiver Claim on Former NYJ, Clemson TE Jordan Leggett Haden, Nelson Have Steelers Hunting for Takeaways Report: Cleveland to Host 2021 NFL Draft Donte Moncrief Big Part of ‘New Guys’ Vying for Ben Roethlisberger’s Targets Cam Heyward: Steelers Drama Caused By ‘The Few, Not The Many’ Ben Roethlisberger Focused on Leadership in Wake of Antonio Brown Flap Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
