The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that they’ve signed OT Jake Rodgers to their practice squad and released WR Justin Thomas from the unit.
The Steelers’ practice squad now consists of:
- C Kyle Friend
- TE Jake McGee
- RB Fitzgerald Toussaint
- WR Marcus Tucker
- DE Lavon Hooks
- LB Farrington Huguenin
- CB Dashaun Phillips
- LB Keith Kelsey
- S Jordan Dangerfield
- OT Jake Rodgers
Rodgers, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Falcons back in May of 2015. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but later signed on to the Giants’ practice squad at the start of the 2015 season.
After a few years with the Giants, Rodgers signed on with the Steelers this past May and had been on and off of their practice squad the past few months before a recent stint with the Chargers.
Rodgers has yet to appear in an NFL game.
