Steelers Sign WR Trey Griffey, Son of Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr.

The Steelers have signed receiver Trey Griffey, the son of Hall of Fame baseball player Ken Griffey Jr., to a futures contract, the team announced Monday.

Griffey went undrafted out of Arizona in 2017 and was signed by the Colts, who released him in July. He then spent a few weeks with the Dolphins before being released in the final round of roster cuts.

Griffey, listed at 6'3" and 192 pounds, caught 23 passes for 382 yards and two touchdowns as a senior in college. His scouting profile noted that he lacks precision in his route running and struggles to get a quick release at the line, though he does have good physicality.

A futures contract allows teams to sign players not a roster at the end of the regular season to a contract that will go into effect at the start of the new league year in March.

Age: 25 (January 19, 1994)

Fun to see a Griffey in the news but it's doubtful he can make the cut.
