Arguably the career highlight of #Steelers new signing Robert Spillane @14rspillane. An undrafted linebacker out of Western Michigan who recorded this interception in Pittsburgh against Landry Jones in Week 3 of the preseason in 2018 @14rspillane pic.twitter.com/82pqDHUXLa

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.
