The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed defensive tackle Daniel Archibong to a reserve/future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
A 6-foot-6, 300-pound defensive tackle, the Steelers signed Archibong to their practice squad on Sept. 1. He was elevated to the active roster twice, in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers and Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He recorded two tackles.
Archibong spent the 2021 offseason and preseason with the Chicago Bears after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Temple. He registered eight tackles over the preseason along with a sack in Chicago’s three preseason games.
Over his five seasons with the Owls, Archibong registered six sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 2 blocked field goals.
The Steelers also signed wide receiver Rico Bussey, defensive tackle Khalil Davis, guard Nate Gilliam, guard Malcolm Pridgeon, outside linebacker Delontae Scott, kicker Sam Sloman, defensive back Linden Stephens, tight end Jace Sternberger, safety Donovan Stiner, long snapper Rex Sunahara and wide receiver Tyler Vaughns to reserve/future contracts on Tuesday.
The 12 signings, plus nine players from the injured reserve and COVID-19 reserve lists and the 53-man roster puts the Steelers’ offseason roster at 74 of the maximum 90.
