Steelers add Alameda Ta'amu, David Gilreath from practice squad

Jared Wickerham

The Steelers made several roster moves on Friday in preparation for their Week 17 meeting with the Browns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and wide receiver David Gilreath from their practice squad, according to Steelers Depot. The two will fill in on Sunday when the Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns.

Ta'amu was a fourth-round selection by Pittsburgh in the 2012 draft. The Steelers waived the nose tackle in November, but later added him to the practice squad. Ta'amu is perhaps best known by fans for a DUI arrest in October in which he allegedly fled from police officers and resisted arrest.

Gilreath has bounced between Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay this season. After playing in a few games for the Steelers -- serving primarily as a punt returner -- Gilreath was dropped and signed with the Buccaneers. But Gilreath found himself back in Pittsburgh after being waived by the Bucs just a few weeks later.

On Friday, the Steelers placed wide receiver Mike Wallace, tackle Mike Adams, and cornerback Curtis Brown on injured reserve. The three were previously ruled out for the season finale because of injuries.
