Steelers Sign RB Jordan Hall, Release Deion Belue
The Steelers have signed former Ohio State running back Jordan Hall. CB Deion Belue has been released to make room on the roster.
Hall is 5’8, 196 lbs and ran for 536 yards last season. He also had 5 kick returns for a total of 122 yards. It’s worth noting that in 2010 and 2011, he had a combined 44 kick return attempts for a total of 1,186 yards. A medical redshirt, Hall’s 2013 production was hampered by a nagging knee injury. In 2012, he had a partial PCL tear, not long after coming back from surgery to a freak cut he suffered to his foot. Last August, Urban Meyer said Hall was the best running back on the team.
The Steelers were awarded Belue off of waivers last month. The rookie cornerback was waived by the Dolphins, who signed him as an undrafted free agent shortly after the draft.
Hall’s contract will be for 3 years, and will likely include little to no signing bonus money. Belue’s was also a 3 year deal
