Former Steelers OLB Anthony Chickillo Retiring From NFL

On Sunday, veteran OLB Anthony Chickillo announced via his Instagram account that he’s retiring from the NFL after six seasons in the league. 

Chickillo, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2015. He was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later signed to the team’s practice squad.

From there, Chickillo was promoted to the Steelers’ active roster a few weeks into the 2015 season. Chickillo signed a two-year, $8 million extension with the Steelers in 2019, but was released last March. 

Chickillo had a brief stint with the Saints before the Broncos signed him to their active roster during the 2020 season.

For his career, Chickillo appeared in 76 games for the Steelers and Broncos and recorded 78 tackles, 8.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three recoveries and four pass deflections over the course of six seasons.
