Steelers Named Russell Wilson’s Top Option | Noah Strackbein, All Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers could be on the hunt for one of the NFL’s biggest quarterbacks and were tabbed as a landing spot in 2024 for the former Denver Broncos passer.

Mason Rudolph wasn’t kidding when he said he was ready to pursue a career in commercial real estate if he hadn’t gotten a spot on an NFL roster this season.

Rudolph made the revelation after he led the Steelers to a 34-11 victory last Saturday against Cincinnati in his first start in more than two years.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t work on my resume a little bit,” Rudolph said Wednesday.

This offseason was the first time he had updated it since his freshman year at Oklahoma State. Until then, there had been no reason to do so.

Steelers Sign Former Browns Safety | Stephen Thompson, All Steelers

Facing some heavy attrition in their defensive backfield, the Pittsburgh Steelers have made a move to add a safety to their practice squad.

Nate Meadors, a former undrafted defensive back out of UCLA, has been added to the Steelers practice squad this week ahead of a Week 17 date with the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced.

After the Vikings added him as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft, Meadors has spent time with the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns. The Browns were the last NFL team to sign Meadors, who also played for the St. Louis Battlehawks in the XFL.
