The Pittsburgh Steelers wasted no time getting to the phones since the 2022 NFL Draft came to a close.
On Saturday, the team announced it signed 10 undrafted free agents to its roster. Five on offense and five on defense:
In addition to the double-digit undrafted free agent signings, the Steelers also came to terms on a one-year deal with former Cowboys/Falcons safety Damontae Kazee. The list of undrafted players is headlined by a pair of defensive backs in Chris Steele and Bryce Watts; a need for Pittsburgh going into the weekend.
Steele recorded 95 tackles, 12 passes defensed, three interceptions, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and a sack across his 23 starts for the Trojans.
Meanwhile, Watts tallied 43 tackles and a pick from the corner spot after joining the Minutemen from Virginia Tech.
The Steelers have done a great job of developing talent during the Mike Tomlin era, so expect some of these undrafted pickups to hit in the years to come.
