NT Dan McCullers re-signed to 1-year deal with Steelers

Joe Rutter
Steelers nose tackle Daniel McCullers has barely played this season but is expected to see a bigger role Sunday against the Browns.

The Steelers are bringing back their biggest free agent – at least in terms of size.

Daniel McCullers, the little-used 6-foot-7, 352-pound nose tackle, has resigned with the team to a one-year contract.

Agent Chad Speck posted news of the signing on his Twitter account Thursday.

McCullers was the Steelers’ sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft. He started only one game in his first four seasons and he was inactive for 10 games and did not play in another. He also was inactive for the AFC divisional playoff loss to Jacksonville.

In 40 career games, McCullers has 16 tackles and one and a half sacks.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
