Steelers Add LB Shayon Green to the Roster

The Steelers have added yet another linebacker to their roster, signing Miami (Fla.) product Shayon Green

Green (6-1, 255) recorded 143 tackles and three sacks with the Hurricanes from 2010 through 2013, overcoming a pair of ACL tears in the same knee to become a 25-game starter. He went undrafted in 2014 and was not in the NFL. Green took part in Miami’s Pro Day on Wednesday, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Green played both middle linebacker and defensive end at Miami, which could allow him to get a look at inside and outside linebacker in Pittsburgh’s 3-4 scheme. His signing gives the Steelers 13 linebackers.
