The Pittsburgh Steelers added two players to their offseason roster today, signing running back Larry Croom
and claiming wide receiver Dan Sheldon
Croom (5-10, 201), from UNLV, was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2004 and finished with 29 carries for 76 yards in six games that season. He was signed by the Tennessee Titans before their 2005 training camp but was cut later in camp. He also spent time on the Detroit Lions practice in 2005 and was signed to San Diego's 2006 offseason roster. He spent three seasons in NFL Europe.
Sheldon (5-8, 179), from Northern Illinois, was claimed off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons. He was most recently with the Cologne Centurions in NFL Europe and finished second in the league in kickoff returns with a 25.1 average. He was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as a free agent in 2005 and spent the season on their practice squad. He then signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 before being released and then signed to the Chicago Bears practice squad. The Falcons signed him earlier this year and allocated him to NFL Europe.
