MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Former Memphis Tiger Paxton Lynch got a new lease on life in the NFL.

He signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on their practice squad.

The Steelers lost Starter Ben Rothliesburger for the season with a shoulder injury. Mason Rudolph takes over with Devlin Hodges as backup.

Lynch played for Seattle in the preseason, hitting 11-19 passes for 1 TD and 1 pick plus a rushing touchdown, but was waived after a concussion knocked him out for the final preseason game.
