Originally signed by Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in May, Sheehy was released in the final round of cuts at the start of September and would fail to find a place on a practice squad during the regular season.
In four years at Wisconsin, Sheehy started 33 of the 54 games he played in and recorded 95 tackles, six sacks and 13.5 tackles for a loss. Measuring in at 6-foot-4 and 295-pounds, the defensive end was a Second-team All-Big Ten by the coaches and third-team All-Big Ten by the media in 2017.
Sheehy becomes the 15th player signed to a reserve/futures contract by the Steelers so far this offseason.
