Pittsburgh announced it is also signing LS Liam McCullough, cutting LB Leo Lewis and waiving WR Anthony Johnson with an injury designation. 

Elliott, 27, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out Toledo back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1,535,000 rookie contract with the Packers but did not receive a restricted offer from the team.

The Packers re-signed Elliott in 2017 before trading him to the Cowboys at the start of the regular season. Dallas elected to cut Elliott loose after a few weeks and he later had a brief stint with the Saints.

Elliott played for the San Antonio Commanders and led the now-defunct AAF in sacks, which earned him a shot with the Dolphins last April. Miami waived Elliott in July and he signed on with the Steelers a month later. 

Elliott bounced on and off of the Steelers’ roster last season. 

In 2019, Elliot  appeared in four games for the Steelers and recorded four tackles and no sacks.
