The Steelers have signed their second round selection from the 2014 NFL Draft, defensive end Stephon Tuitt. Financial terms of the four-year contract were not disclosed.
Tuitt (6-5, 303) started 29-of-35 games at Notre Dame, recording 127 tackles, 21.5 sacks, 25.0 TFLs and 27 quarterback pressures. He also forced four fumbles and had one fumble recovery, which he returned 77 yards for a touchdown. Tuitt’s 77-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown was the second-longest fumble return in school history. In 2013, he received the Notre Dame Moose Krause Lineman of the Year and was on the watch lists for the Maxwell Award and Bednarik Award.
The Steelers have now signed all nine of the team’s selections from the 2014 NFL Draft.
