The Pittsburgh Steelers have made minor moves on back-to-back days.

I end up saying this every year, but will say it again. Any NFL team’s offseason roster is fluid. There are moves made almost daily with very little significance, but the moves certainly can have an impact on the rare occasion.

For the Pittsburgh Steelers they have made these type of moves on back-to-back days now, the most recent being them signing CB Derrek Thomas and waiving CB Herb Waters.

This per the Steelers verified Twitter account:

This from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ official website:

Thomas originally signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft, but was released on July 24 prior to the start of training camp.

Thomas played at Temple (2014-17), but transferred the Baylor in 2018, following his former coach, Matt Rhule. He started 11 of 13 games for Baylor, finishing the season with 21 tackles, an interception and seven passes broken up.

While it would be nice to suggest the Steelers are done making moves, anyone who has paid attention to any training camp knows that isn’t going to happen. You have players get hurt, and they need replaced.

With that said, the Steelers’ 91-man roster is set, again, after Thomas was added and Waters was removed. To stay up to date with the latest and greatest from the black-and-gold, stay tuned to BTSC.
