The Pittsburgh Steelers made a minor roster move on Monday at the fullback position. The Steelers cut Demetrius Taylor, a defensive tackle in college that had been converted to FB during spring practices. The Steelers replaced Taylor with Dwayne Wright, who they claimed off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles. A few notes on Wright:
Wright (6-0, 234) was drafted by Buffalo in the fourth round in 2007 from Fresno State. He appeared in 15 games with the Bills, who released him before the 2008 season. He has been with the Giants in training camp in 2009 and then the Eagles signed him the past January.
