The Pittsburgh Steelers have already begun working on their 53-man roster. The Steelers made a new sign late on Sunday night by inking offensive lineman Cody Wallace. To make room for the new signing, the Steelers parted ways with Pittsburgh native John Malecki.
Wallace was originally drafted in 2009 by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round. After spending two seasons with the niners, Wallace bounced around practice squads playing with the Lions, Jets, and Texans. In 2012, the 6’4″ 300 pound Wallace played in eight games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Since being an undrafted free agent in 2010, Malecki has been released 11 times now (5 by Steelers) and has been apart of 24 separate transactions. Besides his time with the Steelers, Malecki has spent time with the Titans, Browns, Buccaneers, and Redskins. With no practice squad eligibility left, it looks that Malecki’s time in Pittsburgh has come to an end.
