Grimble, 27, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of USC back in 2014. He lasted just a few months with the Giants before eventually signing on to the 49ers’ practice squad.

Grimble had a brief stint with the Patriots before returning to the 49ers on a future/reserve contract in 2015. The Steelers later added him to their taxi squad and re-signed him to a restricted offer worth $2.025 million last April. 

The Steelers placed Grimble on injured reserve and later released him with a settlement. He signed a futures deal with the Colts for the 2020 season before being cut. After a short stint on the practice squad, he was released again. 

In 2019, Grimble appeared in three games for the Steelers and caught one pass for three yards.
