Steelers sign tight end, release rookie
Tuesday, August 29, 2006
The Steelers signed three-year veteran tight end Tim Euhus to a contract and have released rookie free agent tight end Isaac Smolko, the team announced today.
Euhus was released by the New Orleans Saints yesterday. He was originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills out of Oregon State.
In 2005, Euhus appeared in 11 games for the Bills, making three starts. He finished with three receptions for 17 yards. He missed the first five games of the season with a shoulder injury. During his rookie year in 2004, Euhus played in 12 games before sustaining a season-ending knee injury. For his career, he has 14 catches for 115 yards with two touchdowns.
Smolko, a undrafted free agent rookie from Penn State, was signed by the Steelers in April. He appeared in all three preseason games for Pittsburgh and caught one pass, a one-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason opener.
