The Pittsburgh Steelers are re-signing nose tackle Montravius Adams to a two-year contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Adams was a solid nose tackle for the team a year ago, starting the season and then backing up Keeanu Benton for the rest of the season after he left with injury against the Tennessee Titans.

Adams registered 15 pressures, and after the loss of Armon Watts to the New England Patriots, Adams should be seen for a significant consideration to play more. Over his career, Adams has become a reliable player with an explosive first step and someone who always has his motor running hot. Pittsburgh will now return six of their top seven players on the defensive line but could look to add more to that room.

Adams came over to the Steelers in 2021 after they signed him off the New Orleans Saints practice squad.

Adams is a veteran who has played with Green Bay, New England, New Orleans, and now finds himself having an extended stay in Pittsburgh. He came out of Auburn in the 2017 NFL Draft and was drafted in the third round by the Packers. Adams has often talked about the Steelers organization’s family atmosphere and why he has wanted to stick around within the organization.

He joins Isaiahh Loudermilk, DeMarvin Leal, and Breiden Fehoko as depth players. It’s a position that sometimes helped the team but registered the 19th-best run defense in the NFL. So, it certainly could be an area they upgrade either in free agency once again or in the 2024 NFL Draft.
