Steelers Workout DB Money Hunter Thursday (Update)
Off-season NFL practices don’t usually get a lot of attention. This one might. The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly worked on DB Money Hunter on Thursday. Yes, that’s his real name.

Listed at 6’1, 194, Hunter is a 26-year-old Arkansas State safety. During his four years with the team from 2013 to 2016, Hunter recorded 222 tackles with six interceptions, returning four of them for touchdowns.
He recently spent time with the CWF’s Montreal Alouettes. In 2021, he recorded 44 tackles and two interceptions for the team. Hunter has been on a practice circuit this month, winning tries with the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots.
Hunter is the son of former star outfielder Torii Hunter. His birth name is “Monshadrick”. We can all agree that “money” is much cooler. We’ll let you know if the team signs him on their offseason roster.
I’m not one to post highlight videos, but here’s a cut from 2021 because you gotta go watch Money.
Update (9:40 p.m.): The team also tried fellow CFL player Jevon Cottoy. A wide receiver at 6’5, 230, he caught 39 passes for 519 yards and three scores for the BC Lions in 2021. A Canadian-born, he has an interesting history, including taking two years off from the football to become a firefighter after tearing his ACL.
