Former Colorado Buffalo wide receiver Toney Clemons has been signed to his rookie contract by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Clemons, the 231st overall pick and the first of four seventh rounders for Pittsburgh became the third Steeler draft pick to ink their deals after Chris Rainey and Alameda Ta'amu (2nd rounder Mike Adams was signed as I was writing this story). The financial terms of the four-year deal were not disclosed, but it should total out at around $2.15 million and include base salaries of $390,000, $480,000, $570,000, and $660,000.

For those who didn't see on twitter over the weekend, I had the fortune (after the misfortune of having a flight cancelled) of sitting next to former Arizona Wildcat safety and current Steeler UDFA Robert Golden, who was heading home from the weekend's rookie mini-camp. In-between way too many questions about the awesomeness of Mike Stoops, I did ask about Toney's performance during the camp. Golden said that he thought Clemons looked very good catching the ball and was one of the fastest players on the field (after Chris Rainey I'm sure). While it doesn't mean much, it's always nice to hear.

Congrats Toney!
