Matt Galambos hoping to catch on with Steelers

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt had five players selected in the NFL Draft this year, but a few others landed rookie tryouts. One of those was linebacker Matt Galambos who got a look with the Steelers.

It's difficult to make a final roster as an undrafted player but Galambos is hoping to do just that. Step one? Get signed and after the camp, GGalambos achieved that goal.

"I knew if I went out and gave all that I had, learned the plays, the installs to the best of my ability, I would be okay with it," said Galambos. "Right after the final practice of minicamp (General Manager) Kevin Colbert came up and talked to me about staying here. It was an honor.

...

"Getting signed is the first step. You are in the camp. Now you have to keep going. People think you are all set. But there is a long way to go. There is so much work to put in. But it’s awesome. Nobody in my family has ever experienced anything like this."

The odds are still pretty stacked against Galambos but as Steelers Depot suggests, the Steelers are a little thin at inside linebacker and that could to a way being paved for the former Pitt  player.
