Steelers All 91: LB Robert Spillane



All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

49 • Robert Spillane first-year linebacker

Last year: Played in two games for the Tennessee Titans and four weeks Tennessee’s practice squad after signing as a UDFA out of Western Michigan. Signed with the Steelers in February.

Stats: Did not record a stat in his two regular season games. Had 25 tackles in four games with one start in the 2018 preseason. Also defended two passes and had an interception.

Accolades, Highlights:

Camp outlook: Spillane enters a loaded Steelers linebackers room and doesn’t have an obvious position, either. He’s worked inside in the spring, but it’s a deep group there behind Mark Barron, Devin Bush, Tyler Matakevich and Vince Williams.

Projected role: Spillane is likely battling fellow first-year ‘backer Tegray Scales for a practice squad spot.
