The move comes after Thomas, who signed with the Steelers less than a week ago, was waived due to injury. Ponder, who will be taking Thomas’ roster spot, spent some time with the Cleveland Browns during the spring before signing with the Steelers. Ponder was an UDFA out of St. Francis University, and managed to set the school record for passes defended (16) his senior season, which was good enough to earn him top five honors in the FCS at the category. Ponder recorded 25 tackles as well. 45shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:featuredJermaine PonderPittsburgh SteelersSteelers Training Camp Up Next Steelers Sights and Sounds: Camp Day Ten Don't Miss Jerald Hawkins ‘Embracing the Suck’ in Return from Injury Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like James Washington Continues Strong Preseason Performance Injury Updates: Benny Snell, Anthony Chickillo Evaluated; Devin Bush Absence ‘Precaution’ From the Locker Room: Rudolph Critical of his Play, Hilton Compliments Burns Steelers Overcome Sloppy, Delayed Start to Top Chiefs, 17-7 FINAL: Steelers 17, Kansas City Chiefs 7 Players, Coaches from around NFL Attend Darryl Drake’s Funeral 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!
