Steelers claim DT Hebron Fangupo

Steve Dykes

The Pittsburgh Steelers added former Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo via waivers on Saturday in preparation for the Week 17 finale against the Cleveland Browns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers continued making roster moves Saturday in preparation for their Week 17 season finale against the Cleveland Browns, claiming defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. Via Bob Labriola, editor of Steelers Digest:

Fangupo played college ball at USC and then BYU, after serving a two-year mission in the Philippines. He was not selected in the 2012 NFL Draft, and was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent. After being released by the Texans, Fangupo reunited with former college coach Pete Carroll in Seattle as a practice squad player, before finally being promoted to the active roster just over a week ago by the Seahawks.

In addition to claiming Fangupo off waivers, the Steelers signed signed nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and wide receiver David Gilreath from their practice squad on Friday for Sunday's game against Cleveland. Wide receiver Mike Wallace, tackle Mike Adams, and cornerback Curtis Brown, already ruled out for Sunday's game, were placed on injured reserve Friday.
