Steelers Re-Sign OL Malcolm Pridgeon to Practice Squad



The Steelers have re-signed former Ohio State offensive lineman Malcolm Pridgeon to their practice squad, the team announced on Wednesday.

Pridgeon first joined the Steelers on Aug. 9 after a plethora of injuries forced the Steelers to go out and acquire someone. In the time since then, Pridgeon has clearly impressed the team enough to get a practice squad spot. He was released as part of the team’s third set of cuts on Aug. 28.

Pridgeon, 26, was originally signed by the Houston Texans in 2019, but was released by them. In 2020, he joined the Cleveland Browns but was later waived by them as well. With no active experience in NFL regular-season action, Pridgeon is inexperienced and relatively old, but can play either guard spot along the offensive line.

The Steelers also signed defensive end Daniel Archibong, wide receiver Rico Busseyrunning back Trey Edmundscornerback Mark Gilbert, tackle Chaz Greensafety Karl Josephoffensive lineman John Leglueoutside linebacker Christian Miller, tight end Kevin Raderrunning back Jaylen Samuelswide receiver Steven SImssafety Donovan Stineroutside linebacker Derrek Teszka, and wide receiver Cody White to their practice squad. The team has one open spot remaining on the 16-player squad.
