Pittsburgh has signed Myles Jack to their practice squad, three months after the veteran inside linebacker retired from the game with Philadelphia. The move comes as the Steelers are in need of help at the position due to season-ending injuries to Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander. Elandon Roberts played every defensive snap in a recent game against Cleveland, with Mykal Walker taking most of the snaps at the other inside linebacker spot.
The 28-year-old Jack spent the 2022 season with Pittsburgh after playing six seasons in Jacksonville. Last season, he led the Steelers with 104 tackles but was slowed by injuries and eventually released in March. He then signed with Philadelphia in August before retiring two weeks later.
With his previous experience and leadership skills, Jack could be a valuable addition to Pittsburgh’s defense as they look to replace Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander on their roster. The team is currently 6-4 and will need all the help they can get to make a playoff push.
