The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced they have signed outside linebacker Cassius Marsh to a one-year contract for the 2021 season. Additionally, the Steelers made official two signings from over the weekend in offensive lineman Joe Haeg and defensive back Miles Killebrew.
Cassius Marsh joined the Steelers prior to Week 14 of the 2020 season after being signed of the Indianapolis Colts practice squad. Exempt for the Steelers Week 14 game as he cleared Covid protocols and inactive for Week 15, Marsh made his Steelers debut in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts. Playing 11 defensive snaps and 13 special team snaps, Marsh was credited for two tackles.
After missing Week 17 due to being on the Reserve/COVID-19 List, Marsh played the majority of defensive snaps for the Steelers in their Wildcard game against the Cleveland Browns after Alex Highsmith left the game with an injury. On 46 defensive snaps, Marsh had two tackles in the playoff loss.
Before joining the Steelers in 2020, Marsh had spent time with six other NFL teams beginning with the Seattle Seahawks where he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. Marsh bounced around from Seattle to New England, San Francisco, Arizona, Indianapolis, and Jacksonville before landing in Pittsburgh. In all, Marsh has appeared in 92 regular season games and has made nine starts.
The financial portion of Marshal‘s contract is unknown at this time.
As for Joe Haeg and Miles Killebrew, both of those signings were reported on Saturday with contract numbers already released for Haeg.
