Steelers Re-Sign RB Trey Edmunds to Future Contract for 2022 Season



Trey Edmunds

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed running back Trey Edmunds to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Friday.

Edmunds, 27, has been with the Steelers since the 2018 season, spending most of his time on the practice squad, but also filling in at running back, fullback, and is also a reliable special teamer.

Edmunds has played in 21 games with the Steelers over the last four seasons, including two games in 2021, when he played 18 snaps of special teams without recording any statistics.

His most prolific season with the Steelers came in 2019, when he played in 11 games and carried 22 times for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also caught six of seven targets for 48 yards and made six special teams tackles.

The older brother of Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds, Edmunds first joined the New Orleans Saints in 2017 as an undrafted free agent before coming to Pittsburgh in 2018. Edmunds re-signing makes him the seventh-longest-tenured Steelers player under contract for 2022. Only Cam Heyward, Chris Boswell, T.J. Watt, Cam Sutton, Mason Rudolph and Zach Banner have been with the team longer.
