Zrebiec points out, for what it’s worth, 2019 fifth-round DL Daylon Mack was not mentioned by Harbaugh, which could indicate he faces an uphill climb for a roster spot.
Harbaugh also said one, if not both, of undrafted rookie TEs Jacob Breeland or Eli Wolf will make the final roster.
Per NFL Media’s Aditi Khinkhabwala, Steelers RB James Conner says he’s aware of his situation going into the final year of his deal in 2020. Pittsburgh has declined to extend him because of injury concerns but Conner isn’t changing his playstyle: “I’m not playing for a contract, or playing not to get hurt… I’m playing to win.”
Conner recovered from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in college and was immunocompromised at one point, but he says he’s not at any more risk than anyone else for COVID-19: “I’m 100 percent. I had a weak immune system four years ago, its not weak anymore.” (Khinkhabwala)
