Andre Frazier – Steelers

Frazier may not be getting a lot of time on the field but he’s enjoying being in the league and on a successful team since leaving the Bearcats. After spending one season with Pittsburgh in 2005, Frazier spent the 2006 and part of the 2007 season with the hometown Bengals before resigning with the Steelers to finish out the 2007 season. During the regular season the former Hughes High School product posted 10 total tackles.
