Fitzgerald Toussaint signed...to the Steelers

Toussaint to the dark side.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

A dark horse candidate to make the Ravens 53 man roster, or a possibility at the practice squad for Baltimore has not happened for the undrafted runningback, Fitzgerald Toussaint. The former starting Michigan Wolverine tailback has officially signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad. Now is this because he is one of the better backs in the league for the practice squad, or because Toussaint has knowledge of the playbook, and can emulate the styles of former teammates Justin Forsett & Lorenzo Taliaferro?

In truth it's mainly due to Fitzgerald being a decent tailback whom can play many practice squad reps, and help the team he's playing for. If they were truly after scouting playbooks this way every team would take a cut player from the other divisional opponents and exploit them. Maybe a question or two may arise but nothing more.

Fitzgerald finished this final pre-season with 3 games played.

  • 15 carries for 51 yards
  • 6 receptions for 37 yards.

A good practice squad member for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as Fitz was able to be almost a dual threat back both receiving and rushing.
