The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed outside linebacker Delontae Scott to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Scott, 24, was signed by the Steelers to their practice squad on Sept. 7 and he spent nearly the entire season there. Scott was elevated to the active roster once, in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He played in nine snaps without recording any statistics.
Scott was an undrafted free agent out of SMU that signed with the Green Bay Packers before eventually joining the Steelers. At SMU, Scott had 97 tackles, 26 for a loss, 18 sacks and five forced fumbles.
The Steelers also signed defensive tackle Daniel Archibong, wide receiver Rico Bussey, defensive tackle Khalil Davis, guard Nate Gilliam, guard Malcolm Pridgeon, 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.
