Former Steelers OLB Tuzar Skipper Waived by Titans



Steelers OLB Tuzar Skipper

Former Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper was placed on waivers on Sunday by the Tennessee Titans.

Skipper, 26, signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2019 and became a fan favorite after a strong preseason performance that season.

He was waived in the first week of that season and claimed by the New York Giants. The Giants waived him and placed him on their practice squad, but the Steelers re-signed Skipper on Nov. 19, 2019.

In 2020, Skipper was among the final players cut from the Steelers’ training camp roster and caught on with the Titans, signing to their practice squad on Sept. 15.

He was elevated to the active roster for four games and made two starts while recording five tackles before being lost for the rest of the season with an injury. He re-signed with the Titans for 2021 in January.

The Steelers recently added free agent outside linebacker Melvin Ingram and have veteran Cassius Marsh and sixth-round rookie Quincy Roche battling for the No. 4 spot behind starters T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith.
