The Steelers continued to shape their offseason roster Tuesday by signing two players and releasing three others.

The Steelers added long snapper Matt Dooley and defensive tackle Lavon Hooks and released tight end Rob Blanchflower and offensive linemen Kelvin Palmer and Mitchell Van Dyk. All three were on injured reserve during the 2015 season. Blanchflower was the Steelers' seventh-round pick in 2014 out of Massachusetts.

Hooks was a tryout participant during Steelers rookie minicamp last year. Hooks took part in Green Bay's training camp before being released Aug. 31.
