The Steelers announced on Wednesday they have signed C J.C. Hassenauer to the practice squad and released TE Kevin Rader

Here’s an updated look at Pittsburgh’s practice squad: 

  1. S Marcus Allen

  3. DL Henry Mondeaux
  4. OL Patrick Morris
  5. TE Christian Scotland-Williamson (International)

  8. WR Amara Darboh

Hassenauer, 24, wound up signing on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama back in May of 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with Atlanta, but was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Falcons re-signed Hassenauer to their practice squad, only to release him a month later. From there, Hassenauer signed on with the Birmingham Iron of the now-defunct AAF.

Hassenauer caught on with the Steelers after the AAF folded but was waived again coming out of the preseason. 

Hassenauer has yet to appear in an NFL game.
