When the Pittsburgh Steelers came to terms with their 10-man practice squad, we here at BTSC made it a point to notify fans that this unit of players can certainly change. Players can be added, released and promoted, all of which will result in new members.

The Steelers have added a running back to their practice squad in former Tennessee Titans David Cobb, and to make room on the practice squad for him, they released Cameron Stingily.

Cobb was a 5th round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Minnesota has had a disappointing start to his NFL career. This from the Tennessee Titans official website:

"Cobb had a disappointing rookie season in 2015. He spent the first half of last season on injured reserve with a calf injury. During the second half of the year, he had limited success carrying the football. Cobb finished his rookie season with 146 yards on 52 carries (2.8-yard average) while appearing in seven games, with one start."

The Steelers will have Cobb within the organization to learn the system and to be a last possible scenario if the team experiences what they did in 2015 when both Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams were hurt and the team had very little options in terms of experience left at the running back position.
