The Steelers finalized their initial 2019 practice squad on Monday, singing received Johnny Holton to make a full 11 players on the unit after adding 10 to the unit on Sunday.
Holton, 28, joined the Steelers as a free agent in May after spending his first three NFL seasons with the Oakland Raiders. He impressed with a productive training camp and preseason, finishing with seven caches for 167 yards and a touchdown.
Safety Marcus Allen also joined Holton on the practice squad after being released on Saturday. The team’s fifth-round draft pick in 2018 played in just two games after an injury-shortened rookie year.
Joining Allen and Holton are second-year running back Trey Edmunds, first-year linebacker Robert Spillane, tight ends Kevin Rader and Christian Scotland-Williamson, center Patrick Morris, defensive end Henry Mondeaux, wide receiver Tevin Jones, cornerback Travon Mathis and guard Derwin Gray.
