Steelers claim free-agent WR Brandon Reilly, waive CB Alexander Myres

The Steelers added wide receiver Brandon Reilly, who was cut by the Lions, on Wednesday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a pair of roster moves at training camp on Wednesday, claiming free-agent wide receiver Brandon Reilly off waivers and waiving cornerback Alexander Myres.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Reilly was released by the Detroit Lions, where he had two stints. He also spent time with the Buffalo Bills in 2017 and on the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. An undrafted free agent from Nebraska, he caught the winning touchdown pass in an upset victory over previously undefeated Michigan State in 2015.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was asked after practice what he knew about Reilly.

“Not a lot,” Tomlin said. “I hear that he’s able and ready, and those two things are what we need right now.”

Myres, an undrafted free agent from Houston, was waived with a non-football-illness designation.

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.
