Lamar Slade signs on with the Steelers

Lamar Slade has signed on with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent.<br><br> Lamar will be taking it to the next level as he tries out for a spot on the Steelers roster.

Sure hands and great route-running with flashes of acrobatic catching ability are what marked Lamar Slade's career at Pittsburgh, and he's getting the opportunity to prove that he can take those attributes to the professional level.

After the departures of Antonio Bryant and R.J. English, Lamar came through big-time as the sole senior of a young receiving unit at Pitt and finished his senior season as the sixth-ranked receiver in the Big East for average yards per reception and average receiving yards for that season.

Slade established a physical style of play, which is so important in the NFL for a receiver, over his career at Pitt, and PittInsiders.com will be following his progress in the NFL.
