The Pittsburgh Steelers signed their second-round draft pick, wide receiver James Washington, to a rookie contract, ProFootballTalk Live reported Friday.

Washington is the fourth of Pittsburgh’s seven draft picks to sign a four-year deal.

The No. 60 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Washington finished his college career at Oklahoma State with 226 receptions for 4,472 yards and 39 touchdowns. He added 70 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Washington could help fill a void at receiver after the Steelers traded Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders during the offseason.

With the Steelers, Washington will be reunited with former college teammate and quarterback Mason Rudolph, a third-round selection. Rudolph is among the three Steelers draft picks who remain unsigned.

Last year, the Steelers also selected a wide receiver in the second round, nabbing JuJu Smith-Schuster.
