The Steelers signed receiver Jasper Collins and safety Jordan Dangerfield to reserve/future contracts Friday, giving them 21 players signed to such deals since the season ended.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Collins signed with the Miami Dolphins last year as an undrafted rookie free agent from Mount Union. He later spent time on the practice squads of the Cleveland Browns and Dolphins.

Dangerfield, who is 5-foot-11 and 199 pounds, played at Towson before signing with the Buffalo Bills last year as an undrafted rookie. He was cut by the Bills at the end of training camp.

Reserve/future contracts can be offered only to players who weren't on an NFL team's roster when the regular season ended.
