Tyler Vaughns

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed wide receiver Tyler Vaughns to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced on Tuesday.

Vaughns, 24, had three stints on the Steelers’ practice squad this season. He has spent the majority of the season with the Steelers, first signing with the team on Sept. 7, but did not appear in a game.

A 6-foot-2, 190-pound rookie out of Southern California, Vaughns was first signed as an undrafted free agent by the Indianapolis Colts. 

In five seasons with the Trojans, Vaughns caught 222 passes for 2,801 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was named second-team All-Pac 12 in 2020. Vaughns was a teammate of fellow Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster at USC in 2016-17.

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, safety Donovan Stiner and long snapper Rex Sunahara to reserve/future contracts on Tuesday.
