Former Steelers Practice Squad WR Dead at 35

Pittsburgh — Devon Wylie, a former wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad, passed away at the age of 35, according to a social media post made by Fresno State football. There is no known cause of death.

During the 2013 season, Wylie was in Pittsburgh for two weeks. Before moving on to the Tennessee Titans in year two, he was originally selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth round. He hopped around after that, playing for seven different teams, including the Steelers.

During his career, Wylie caught 98 passes for 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns, making him a standout at Fresno State.

When Markus Wheaton became injured and needed to be replaced, the team brought in the then-veteran. Wylie was considered a return specialist and an offensive option while he was in Pittsburgh.

The Wylie family has the sympathy and best wishes of the entire Steelers team.
