Steelers sign four
Cornerback Devin Smith, who spent most of training camp with the Steelers, was one of four players signed Tuesday by Pittsburgh to reserve/future contracts.
Smith, from Wisconsin, divided the 2013 season between the practice squads of the Steelers and Dolphins.
Also signed were linebacker Dan Molls, an undrafted rookie from Toledo cut by the Chargers at the end of camp; running back Miguel Maysonet, who was on the practice squads of four different teams during the season; and wide receiver Lanear Sampson, who originally signed with the Colts last season before spending most of the season on the Cowboys' practice squad.
Only players not on an NFL team's active roster at the end of a season are eligible to be signed to reserve/future contracts.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
