Pittsburgh Steelers Sign UTEP Safety DB Da'mon Cromartie-Smith to Free Agent Contract

Congratulations to former UTEP Miner safety Da'mon Cromartie-Smith who has signed a free-agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Cromartie-Smith finished 9th in the nation last year in tackles and had an impressive pro-day workout.  More on Cromartie-Smith's pro day workout here.

I'm monitoring the NFL Free agent wires.  So far, the only Miner to sign a contract is  Da'mon Cromartie-Smith.

AM Update:  Miner WR Receiver Jeff Moturi has signed with the Green Bay Packers (per Miner Illustrated and EPT Twitter).  Moturi had as productive a career as possible at UTEP.  He is a bit undersized (just over 5'11) but has good speed and an ability to make plays after the catch.

Here are his pro-day numbers. 

WR Jeff Moturi ran 4.42 and 4.43 in the 40, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-10 broad jump, a 4.24 short shuttle, a 6.76 three-cone drill and did 18 bench press reps.

Expect updates periodically on this thread.
