The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed safety Donovan Stiner to a reserve/future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Stiner originally joined the team as an undrafted free agent out of Florida just after the 2021 NFL Draft. In four preseason games, Stiner had eight tackles, one interception and one pass defended.
He was waived as part of the team’s final cut-down to 53 players at the end of training camp, but was added to the practice squad on Sept. 1. Stiner spent the entire 2021 season on the practice squad and was not activated for any games.
A 6-foot-2, 210-pound safety, Stiner recorded 150 career stops and four tackles for loss with the Gators in 48 appearances. He also had six interceptions and nine pass breakups.
The Steelers also signed defensive tackle Daniel Archibong, wide receiver Rico Bussey, defensive tackle Khalil Davis, guard Nate Gilliam, guard Malcolm Pridgeon, outside linebacker Delontae Scott, kicker Sam Sloman, defensive back Linden Stephens, tight end Jace Sternberger, 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.
