The AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers announced their signing of former Arizona Wildcat Trey Griffey on Monday.

The deal is a one-year futures contract worth $550,000, according to Spotrac. (though it is unlikely any of that money is guaranteed.)

Griffey, a 6-foot-3, 209-pound wide receiver, originally signed a three-year, $1.65 million contract with the Indianapolis Colts after going undrafted in May of 2017.

In June, he was placed on injured reserve. One month later, he was waived.

Griffey landed back on his feet with the Miami Dolphins in August, and appeared in two preseason games, but recorded no statistics. He was later waived in September.

After signing Griffey, the Steelers now have seven wide receivers under contract heading into the 2018 NFL Draft.

At Arizona, Griffey played in 35 games and tallied 79 catches for 1,241 yards, adding six touchdowns.

While the production wasn't totally there, he was one of the more dependable rotational receivers during his time.

Hopefully he makes the best of his opportunity with the Steelers.
