The Steelers re-signed receiver Justin Brown and outside linebacker Alan Baxter and placed them on the practice squad with six other players today.
Also signed to the eight-man squad were T Joe Long, G Chris Hubbard; RB Alvester Alexander; DE Brian Arnfelt, OLB Terence Garvin and CB Devin Smith.
All players were with the Steeles in training camp. Brown was a sixth-round draft choice from Oklahoma who also played at Penn State.
Baxter, an undrafted rookie who played defensive end at Northern Illinois, was one of the training camp surprises.
