Steelers Depot reports that fromer Pitt tight end Dorin Dickerson will try to show his stuff to the Steelers in a workout on Monday.
Dickerson was taken in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, who ended up making him a wide receiver – Dickerson had played tight end as a junior and senior at Pitt, but had previously played wideout.
Steelers Depot speculates that the Steelers could be thinking of moving Dickerson back to tight end, given the amount of talent they already have at wide receiver. Behind The Steel Curtain, meanwhile, thinks he could be great on special teams. What’s clear is that he’s an outstanding athlete.
The Steelers often show interest in local players, but that doesn’t mean they always end up signing them. We’ll see what, if anything, they have in store for Dickerson.
