Miguel Maysonet has a new home -- again.

The former Stony Brook running back was signed yesterday to a future / reserve contract by the Steelers. Pittsburgh is the seventh team for Maysonet, 24, who closed out the season on the Washington Redskins' practice squad.

The Riverhead native, who went undrafted in April, signed with the Eagles as a free agent and later spent time with the Browns, Colts, Chargers and Jets.

Maysonet was a runner-up for the Walter Payton Award as outstanding player in the Football Championship Subdivision and was the first Stony Brook player ever invited to the NFL combine.
