    Steelers sign LB Ellis to practice squad

    PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Steelers have signed outside linebacker Chris Ellis to their practice squad after losing outside linebacker Thaddeus Gibson to the 49ers on a waiver claim.

    Ellis, a third-round pick by Buffalo in 2008, was waived by the Bills on Oct. 11. A former defensive end at Virginia Tech, he was replaced there by Jason Worilds, now a Steelers backup linebacker.

    Gibson, a fourth-round pick from Ohio State, was removed from the 53-man roster so the Steelers could activate defensive lineman Steve McLendon for Sunday night's game in New Orleans. Gibson was claimed Monday by San Francisco.

    the Tampa Bay Bucs signed have signed DT Al Woods from the Steelers' practice squad.

    Woods was a talented underachiever at LSU before the Saints drafted him in the fourth round this past April.

    Ed: Steelers Sign Former No. 3 Pick

    TUESDAY, 02 NOVEMBER 2010 15:19 WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE


    The Steelers let a player drafted on the fourth round go and signed a player drafted on the third round.

    The team today signed linebacker Chris Ellis to their practice squad. Buffalo drafted him in the third round in 2008 and waived him Oct. 11. He played the same position, defensive end, at Virginia Tech before Jason Worilds played it there. He also hails from Mike Tomlin’s home area, Hampton, Virginia. Apparently, Ellis could not adjust to outside linebacker this year in Buffalo’s new 3-4 defense. The Steelers will give him more time to do so.

    They had an opening on their practice squad after signing defensive lineman Steve McLendon to their 53-man roster.
