Steelers Sign Their Seventh-round Picks
The check-listing of rookie contracts is in full effect, and has taken hold in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers announced they had signed seventh-rounders DeMarcus Ayers and Tyler Matakevich to their four-year rookie deals.
With draft picks descending on Pittsburgh for rookie minicamp this weekend, it was easy enough to get them signed.
Ayers, a wide receiver from Houston, could provide some help on returns this year. Matakevich is a linebacker from Temple, who was the school’s all-time leading tackler and won both the Chuck Bednarik Award and Bronko Nargurski Trophy.
