We are learning that Dewayne Hendrix is signing a contract with the Steelers, per league sources.
The fearsome 6-foot-4, 269-pound Hendrix was one of the top high school football recruits at defensive end in the nation. He was a Semper Fidelis All-American. He had 60 tackles in his senior year alone.
After high school, he left home for the first time as a Tennessee Volunteer. After his freshmen season, he transferred to the University of Pittsburgh, losing his sophomore season to injury. But he put it together his junior and senior years, racking up 50 total tackles, 7.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries.
Hendrix went undrafted and bounced around between the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars practice squads, unable to snag a spot on an active roster.
He landed In the XFL however and found a home with the St. Louis BattleHawks. Well after a solid season in Saint Louis Hendrix will get another shot in the NFL!
Congrats to Dewayne!
