In addition to Dorin Dickerson, the Pittsburgh Steelers will also bring in former Bears 3rd round pick WR Juaquin Iglesias for a workout on Tuesday morning, sources tell Inside Pittsburgh Sports..
Iglesias, 24, was the Bears 3rd round pick in 2009 but failed to make any kind of impact, being active for only one game in 2009 after being expected to challenge for a top-3 wide receiver spot. Iglesias spent most of the 2010 season on the Bears practice squad and was signed by the Minnesota Vikings late in the season.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound receiver runs a 4.4 yard forty and like Dickerson is being looked at as an option on the practice squad.
Dickerson, from West Allegheny High School, Pitt, was developed as a wide receiver at Houston but struggled with the position switch and was released this month. There were high expectations for the 7th round pick in Houston, with talk of Dickerson claiming the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver spot going into camp. Things obviously didn’t pan out.
Dickerson might be a worthwhile sign on the practice squad, just from the standpoint that the Steelers play Houston in week 4. Dickerson could be a help for input on the Texans offense.
