Steelers to Host Former Titans Defensive Back on Tryout



Steelers DB Joshua Kalu

The Steelers are hosting former Titans defensive back Joshua Kalu on a tryout, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 in Houston.

Kalu, 27, has played in the NFL since 2018 after coming out of Nebraska. During those years, he made the Titans roster as an undrafted safety in 2018 and stayed with the team through the 2020 season. After, he would join the New York Giants in 2021 but only stayed there for a year. Kalu rejoined the Titans in 2022. However, he became a free agent after that and has yet to find a home since.

Kalu has two career forced fumbles and one interception in his career. He registered 55 total tackles. During his time with the Cornhuskers, he racked up 7 interceptions and 3 fumble recoveries. The visit comes off the Steelers already signing two defensive backs on Wednesday amid a few injuries that they have suffered at the position, including the season-ending injury to Cory Trice.

The Steelers brought in Isaiah Dunn and Trenton Thompson on Wednesday. Thompson, 25, is a 6-foot-1, 196-pound safety from San Diego State. He joined the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent after the 2022 NFL Draft and played one game as a rookie in 2022. Dunn, 24, has played 17 games in his two-year NFL career. He originally joined the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2021, where he played alongside fellow Steelers defensive back Elijah Riley.
