Steelers sign TE Pope to one-year deal

The SportsXchange

The Steelers signed tight end Leonard Pope to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

Pope played for offensive coordinator Todd Haley in Arizona and Kansas City. At 6-8, 264, he is an effective blocker and short-yardage receiver.

Pope was a third-round pick in 2006 out of Georgia and began his career with the Cardinals.

With current No. 2 tight end Weslye Saunders suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season, Pope gives the Steelers an experienced backup behind Heath Miller.
