Steelers add WR

The Dorian Bryant mystery is over.

The Purdue WR/return man failed his physical with the Steelers, which is why he was in town Thursday, but not with the team Friday when mini-camp opened.

The Steelers signed Wake Forst wide receiver Kevin Marion to take his place on the roster.

The 5-foot-10 Marion caught 44 passes for 485 yards and one touchdown during his career at Wake Forest, making 18 catches for 192 yards as a senior in 2007.

Do you know if Kevin provides the same skills on returns that Bryant did? I've not been able to find much info on this guy. Thanks!

He's a blazer. But you're talking about - in the case of both guys - players who have little chance to make the team.
