I miss him already.

If used properly, hyphen can do some solid damage. And I am suprised he was unable to find work sooner. One of my personal favorite players on the Cards roster over these past few years, and I will always cheer for him.

enjoy him Steeler fans...he's the man.

underrated signing. I was hopping the Giants would take a look at him. Will help out on special teams and as a situational runner/screen player. Plus he is already familiar with the Steelers system

What do you guys expect the depth chart will look like?

What i'm hoping for:

1. Le'Veon Bell
2. Jonathan Dwyer
3. Isaac Redman (could be traded)
4. LaRod Stephens Howling

I like this move. Basically he'll take over the Chris Rainey role, playing RB, extended RB (lined up wide) and returner.

Good move by the Steelers!

I always traded for him in Madden when I used a receiving back role.

Beast returner in Madden Laughing From the sounds of Cardinal fans he will be missed there.

Wow, nice under the radar signing that will pay huge dividends during the season.

This reminds me a little bit of when the Steelers signed Mewelde Moore in 2008, there wasn't much made about the signing but Moore ended up been a pretty big contributor in their Superbowl season.

Anything over 1m is overpaying, good deal for Pit.

The best thing you will get from hyphen is his ability on punt coverage, as a gunner on kick coverage and big play ability on offense.

excellent! We've been paying Will Allen too much to do just #1 and #2 along with serve as a backup safety.

I didn't realize he was also an asset in kick coverage. I like it.
