Former Steelers linebacker James Lockhart has been claimed on waivers by the San Francisco 49ers, according to the Saturday NFL transactions report.
The Steelers waived Lockhart on Friday when they re-signed wide receiver Saeed Blacknall.
A 6-foot-2, 263-pound Baylor grad, Lockhart originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in April. He had been replaced on the depth chart with the signing of veteran outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott on Thursday.
The Steelers remain at the 80-man roster limit after six transactions late this week.
