Steelers Sign Rookie Tuman


The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Jerame Tuman, a tight end from Michigan who was the first of their two fifth-round draft picks on Monday.

Tuman, 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, caught 28 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns while starting all 12 games for the Wolverines last season.

Still among Pittsburgh's unsigned picks, however, is first-rounder Troy Edwards, a wide receiver from Louisiana Tech.

The Steelers open training camp for veterans and rookies July 29.
