The Pittsburgh Steelers just wrapped up their rookie minicamp, but this minicamp wasn’t just for drafted, or undrafted, rookies, but a try-out for several other players who might have been released from another team and looking for a home.

When it comes to the roster, the Steelers had their 91 players, the extra player being Christian Scotland-Williamson, heading into minicamp, but after camp the team can sign anyone who tried out.

The team did just that by signing six new players, five of them who participated in the minicamp. They are:

QB Devlin Hodges
OT Damian Prince
LB Tuzar Skipper
DE Henry Mondeaux
DT Greg Gilmore

The team also announced the signing of veteran WR Johnny Holton.

When you sign six players, you have to get rid of six players to create room on the roster.

The team released the following players from their roster:

LB Keion Adams
DE Jay Hayes
DT Chris Nelson
OL R.J. Prince,
QB Brogan Roback
WR Ka’Raun White
