The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed guard Nathan Gilliam to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Gilliam had two stints on the Steelers’ practice squad this season. He spent a week with the team in December and then was re-signed on Jan. 8 for the remainder of the season. He did not appear in any games.
A 6-foot-5, 300-pound Wake Forest graduate, Gilliam is in his second professional season. He joined the Los Angeles Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2020 and-resigned with the team in 2021, but has never been elevated to the active roster.
The Steelers also signed defensive tackle Daniel Archibong, wide receiver Rico Bussey, defensive tackle Khalil Davis, 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.
