The Steelers reshuffled their practice squad on Tuesday, signing wide receiver Terry Smith and re-signing tight end Kevin Rader while releasing running back Darrin Hall.
Wright is a 5-foot-11, 180-pound rookie wide receiver from Purdue. Wright is a speedy receiver who ran a 4.44 in the 40-yard dashboard at his pro day.
He was undrafted and signed by the Seattle Seahawks following the 2019 Draft. He had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in the preseason, but was cut from the Seahawks before the regular season began.
Rader, a Pine-Richland and Youngstown State grad, was signed by the Steelers in the offseason after spending his rookie season with the Green Bay Packers.
He has three catches for 30 yards in four preseason games with the Steelers this fall. He was signed to the practice squad after being waived at the end of the preseason and had been cut from the practice squad on Oct. 30.
Another local product, Hall, who is a Youngstown, Ohio native, was released just a week after he was added to the practice squad.
Hall has spent time with four NFL teams in his rookie season out of Pitt. Before the Steelers signed him, he played in three preseason games with the Packers.
Injured running backs James Conner and Benny Snell, Jr. were both inactive against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday and Trey Edmunds and fullback Rosie Nix were injured in that game.
