The Trenton Steel defensive tackle Tyrell Zimmerman has received a call-up to the Arena Football League. The 6-foot-1, 285-pounder has signed a contract with the Tulsa Talons.

He’s expected to be in the Talons lineup this Saturday night against the Orlando Predators. He’s the latest player to move on following the end of the Steel season.


“Tyrell certainly has the athleticism and agility to help an AFL team on the defense line,” said Steel head coach Rod Miller.

Zimmerman joins Nate Tucker, Melik Brown, and E.J. Nemeth, who has all received promotions to the top Arena Football League. Tucker signed with the Cleveland Gladiators, while Brown signed with the Philadelphia Soul.

Nemeth was added by the Utah Blaze.

Before coming to the Steel, Zimmerman had a workout with the Talons and head coach Mitch Allner last November.

The Talons, who currently have a 7-9 record, had injuries to several players, which made the Zimmerman signing possible. Tulsa is still in playoff contention, and will end their season with Kansas City Command on July 23rd.

“It’s a great opportunity,” said Zimmerman. “I just want to make the best of it.”
