To fill their 53-man roster, the Steelers have signed second-year free agent cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke to a one-year deal. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.


Great move and depth signing for the Steelers. One of the best young CBs that was available in free agency

DVD sucks. One of the best young CBs on the market doesn't get passed by 32 teams and go unsigned for a couple days if they are any good. Laughing

that or he waits for the right deal and situation for his talent. DVD won't start over Allen or lewis though.

He's the 5th CB and will barely see the field.

I doubt he ever does much, but the dude has elite speed. From what I HEARD from some Raider fans, Rod Woodson vouched for him, and if Carnell Lake can coach him up even a little, he could be an asset.

Its a low risk/high reward type signing. Doubtful the huge payoff ever comes, but it doesnt hurt us to kick the tires one bit.

Nothing wrong with this signing if its merely for a #5 or #6 developmental CB. Sometimes you have to take chances.

he's going to be a good player if he keeps adding muscle(added like 10 lbs in the offseason)

He just needs to keep playing and gaining experience. Eventually he could become a solid cover corner but doesn't offer special teams value, which most teams look for out of their 3rd string corners.

Muscle might help his awfulness at tackling, but I doubt it will help his cover skills. Wink

If thats the case, easily worst CB FA class ever.

I wonder if he'd be used as a safety in a Cover-3 deep zone? Could make good use of his skill and size. He's 6'2", isn't he?

+1 He showed talent in man to man coverage as a rookie. He's still raw, but I think he's well worth keeping on as a 5th CB.

Yup, good development pick. Although odd fit for the Steelers. Didn't seem like a corner the Steelers usually target for their scheme...
