Steelers Re-Sign OLB Cassius Marsh to One-Year Deal



The Steelers have re-signed outside linebacker Cassius Marsh, the team announced on Wednesday.

Marsh had been an unrestricted free agent. The contract is for one year and the terms were not released.

The Steelers originally acquired Marsh, 28, on Dec. 9, 2020, when they signed him off the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. The UCLA alum was a fourth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2014.

After spending his first three seasons in Seattle, Marsh has bounced around, playing with the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, Seahawks once again, Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars and Colts before landing in Pittsburgh.

With the Steelers, the 6-foot-4, 254-pound Marsh was signed to help replace multiple injuries at the linebacker position. Marsh played in one regular season and one playoff game with Pittsburgh, recording four total tackles.

With starter Bud Dupree and backup Ola Adeniyi moving on in free agency, Marsh is currently third on the Steelers’ outside linebacker depth chart behind presumptive starters T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith. Fellow veteran outside linebacker and special teamer Jayrone Elliott remains a free agent.

In addition to announcing the signing of Marsh, the Steelers also officially announced the signings of offensive lineman Joe Heag and linebacker Miles Killebrew.
