A second-year pro out of Maryland, Gray played in five games for the Steelers this season since being activated from the practice squad in late September, with his most extensive playing time coming on Dec. 21, when he played 16 offensive snaps against Cincinnati and earned praise for his run-blocking ability.
A 6-foot-4, 320-pound lineman out of Maryland, Gray was the Steelers’ seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. A collegiate tackle, he spent all of 2019 on the practice squad while making the move to guard.
Gray was passed on the Pittsburgh depth chart this season by fourth-round rookie Kevin Dotson, who started in place of injured Starter Matt Feiler on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Steelers also recently signed guard Danny Isidora from the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad and have been getting him up to speed. Backup center J.C. Hassenauer and practice squad guard/tackle Anthony Coyle can also play the position.
