The Steelers have signed tight end Sean McHugh to take center Sean Mahan's place on the 53-man roster.

McHugh, a former Penn State standout, spent the previous three seasons with the Lions. His addition gives the Steelers three tight ends on their roster.

McHugh, who can also play fullback, appeared in 15 games last season and caught 17 passes for 252 yards.

A spot became available on the Steelers' roster Tuesday when they traded Mahan to the Buccaneers for a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NFL draft.
