Steelers sign David Gilreath to practice squad

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Steelers shook up their practice squad on Wednesday with the addition of David Gilreath.

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a couple of roster moves on Wednesday morning, signing wide receiver David Gilreath to the practice squad after cutting wide receiver Bert Reed to make room, according to Bob Labriola.

Gilreath has bounced around quite a bit after coming out of the University of Wisconsin in 2011. Undrafted, Gilreath has failed to make his mark yet, signing with the Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Steelers once before in his brief career.

The 24-year-old has never caught a pass in the NFL, but he has earned some action as a return man.

For the time being, Gilreath serves as organizational depth for a team that has suffered more than its fair share of injuries, including to the wide receiver spot. Antonio Brown has already missed time this year, being the most notable of the men at that position to go down with an ailment.
