Professional career[edit]

Pittsburgh Steelers[edit]

Grisham was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent after going undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft. He spent the first 12 games of the 2009 NFL season on the Steelers practice squad, and was added to the 53-man roster on December 10, 2009 after an injury to another receiver. Grisham made his first NFL reception on December 27, 2009 against the Baltimore Ravens for 14 yards, resulting in a first down.

Following the 2010 preseason, he was cut on September 4 when the Steelers set their 53-man roster. He was then signed to their practice squad on September 6 and finished the season in that roster status.

In 2011, Grisham was waived as part of the final cuts to the 53-man roster on September 2, but was added to the Steelers' practice squad on September 4 and again stayed in that roster status for the remainder of the season.
