The Steelers continue you build depth at the wide receiver position in 2014, a position that has more questions than answers at this point as the team looks at the future. With both Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery unrestricted free agents, the Steelers could be searching for multiple players as they inch toward training camp. The latest addition is wide receiver Danny Coale, a former fifth-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys, who was signed to a Reserve//Futures contract. 
Coale is an interesting prospect, who spent time on the Cowboys practice squad during his rookie season prior to injuring his knee in November 2012. Released by Dallas in September 2013, he did spend some time early in the 2013 campaign with the Indianapolis Colts. Once released by the Colts,  he spent the majority of 2013 out of the league. 
If healthy, the 6-0, 187-pound Coale could be an interesting possession receiver. During his college career, he put up solid numbers as a four-year starter at Virginia Tech.  In all, recorded 165 receptions for 2,658 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns. To this point, Coale is the fifth wide receiver he team has signed to Reserve/Futures contracts in 2014.
