Pittsburgh has an open practice squad spot and needs some additional depth at outside linebacker due to injuries.
Charlton, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017. Dallas made the decision to waive him in September of last year and was claimed by Miami shortly after.
Charlton was entering the final year of his four-year, $10.02 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $1.83 million in 2020 when he was waived. The Chiefs later signed him to a contract last May and brought him back on another one-year deal this offseason.
Kansas City released Taco Charlton coming out of the preseason.
In 2020, Charlton appeared in seven games for the Chiefs and recorded seven tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.
