PITTSBURGH — Former Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad wide receiver Devon Wylie has passed away at the age of 35, Fresno State football announced on social media. The cause of death is unknown.

Wylie spent two weeks in Pittsburgh during the 2013 season. He was originally a fourth-round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs before heading to the Tennessee Titans in year two. After that, he bounced around, spending time with seven different teams, including the Steelers.

Wylie was a standout at Fresno State, catching 98 passes for 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns during his career.

The then-veteran joined the team when they needed a replacement for Markus Wheaton, who was dealing with a finger injury. During his stop in Pittsburgh, Wylie was viewed as an option for both the offense and as a return specialist.

All Steelers sends their thoughts and condolences to the Wylie family.
