- The Steelers also signed OL Christian DiLauro and RB Tony Brooks-James to their practice squad.

Tuitt, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Steelers back in 2014. He’s entering the third year of a six-year, $61 million contract that included an $11 million signing bonus.
Tuitt agreed to restructure his contract for the second straight year this past July in a move that created $3.9M in cap space.
In 2019, Tuitt has appeared in six games for the Steelers and recorded 22 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
