The Pittsburgh Steelers are in need of depth at several positions. Some areas the need is based off of injuries, while others based off players who aren’t available at the moment.
With Maurkice Pouncey, Jerald Hawkins on the Reserve/COVID-19 List, and Bud Dupree lost for the year with a torn ACL, the Steelers needed to bolster the depth at those positions. With that said, it shouldn’t come as a shock the Steelers worked out players who would help fill some of those depth needs.
