The Steelers lost ILB Ryan Shazier to a very serious spine injury last night, so they needed to bolster their depth at linebacker and bringing back Spence, who happens to be one of the best available options, makes sense considering he spent a few years in Pittsburgh.
Spence, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2012. He, unfortunately, sustained a serious knee injury early on his NFL career that wound up preventing him from appearing in a game until the 2014 season.
However, Spence was able to return and play pretty well for the Steelers before he departed and signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Titans last year. The Colts signed him a one-year, $2.5 million contract this past March only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
Indianapolis re-signed Spence a week later but elected to cut him loose a few weeks ago.
In 2017, Spence has appeared in three games but has yet to record a tackle.
