PITTSBURGH — The Steelers re-signed veteran quarterback Brian St. Pierre today to their active roster.
St. Pierre (6-3, 230) was released on Saturday, Oct. 14, from the Steelers 53-man roster. He was signed to Pittsburgh's practice squad on Sept. 4, two days before being signed to the team's active roster. He spent last year with the Baltimore Ravens.
St. Pierre was originally drafted by the Steelers in the fifth round (163rd overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft and then spent time on both the active roster and the practice squad for Pittsburgh. After being waived on Sept. 3, 2005, St. Pierre was signed to the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad on Sept. 22, 2005, and signed to the active roster on Dec. 8. St. Pierre, who was waived by the Ravens on Sept. 2, 2006, has played in one career game, which was the Steelers' season finale against the Buffalo Bills on Jan. 2, 2005.
To make room for St. Pierre, the Steelers waived rookie cornerback Jovon Johnson from their active roster. Johnson (5-9, 177) was signed to the Steelers' practice squad on October 10. He previously spent time in the New York Jets' training camp but was waived on Aug. 28.
The Steelers also terminated rookie running back Cedric Humes (6-1, 233) from their practice squad and re-signed second-year defensive end Shaun Nua (6-5, 280) back to the practice squad.
