The Steelers have signed offensive tackle Chaz Green to a one-year contract, the team announced on Tuesday. Terms of the contract were not immediately announced.
Green, 29, is a six-year NFL veteran that has appeared with four different teams. Green appeared in 15 games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2020 and made one start. He played both tackle spots and left guard for the Colts, but earned most of his playing time at right tackle.
He was with the Denver Broncos in training camp in 2019, but did not make the team and spent the 2019 regular season out of football. He had short stints with the New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders in 2018.
Green had his most extensive NFL playing time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, where he signed as an undrafted free agent in 2016. Green played four games and made two starts as a rookie, playing mostly left tackle and then played in 14 contests with four starts in 2017, mostly playing left guard.
Green will join a number of free agent additions in an obvious attempt to bolster the depth of the team’s offensive line. The Steelers brought back center/guard B.J. Finney through free agency this offseason, along with guard Rashaad Coward and tackle Joe Haeg.
