The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the process of getting their offseason roster solidified, and a critical part of that process is signing players to Reserve/Future contracts. The team recently added 13 players to reserve contracts, and Friday they added two more players to their growing roster.
Those players would be running back Trey Edmunds and offensive tackle Jarron Jones. This official statement is from the Steelers:
What might come as a shock to many fans of the black and gold is how the Steelers recently parted ways with Trey Edmunds. He was waived just days ago, most thinking it was to help the veteran running back/special teams player find a new home.
Nonetheless, he finds his way back to the Steelers alongside his brother, Terrell Edmunds, for at least another season.
Edmunds was active for the Steelers in four games in 2020, twice as a practice squad elevation and twice once signed to the active roster before landing on the Reserve/Injured List. After rushing for 92 yards on 22 attempts in the 2019 season, Edmunds did not have a rushing attempt this season and only saw seven snaps on offense.
As for Jaron Jones, he spent the entire 2020 season on the Steelers’ practice squad until he was placed on the injured list prior to the end of the season. A defensive lineman in college at Notre Dame, Jones made the change to offense and came to the Steelers in the 2020 offseason via the XFL.
