The Pittsburgh Steelers announced the signing of 6-6, 235 pound wide receiver Matt Trannon on Wednesday.
Trannon was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Michigan State in 2007. After being released in training camp, he spent time on the Cardinals practice squad last season. Trannon also was on the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders practice squads throughout the 2007 season.
The Jets desperately need a receiver like this, but it's been a long time since they have had one.
