Steelers Sign S John Battle to Practice Squad



The Steelers have signed safety John Battle to their practice squad, the team announced on Friday.

Battle, 25, originally signed with the Steelers on a reserve/future contract in January and spent the entire offseason with the squad before being released at the end of training camp earlier this month.

The Steelers had an open spot on their practice squad after the Arizona Cardinals signed away safety Curtis Riley on Wednesday.

In 38 games with the Tigers, Battle recorded 143 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, five interceptions, forced two fumbles and defended 11 passes.
