Steelers sign Jeremy McNichols, release Trey Edmunds

The Steelers have made a proceed to bolster some backfield depth.

Pittsburgh announced on Tuesday that the team has signed running back Jeremy McNichols.

McNichols has bounced around a whole lot since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2017. But he spent 2020 and 2021 with the Titans. He appeared in every 16 games in 2020, rushing for 204 yards and a touchdown alongside making 12 receptions for 55 yards. With Derrick Henry injured for a lot of last season, McNichols finished the entire year with 396 yards from scrimmage 156 rushing, 240 receiving with one receiving touchdown.

McNichols may compete to back up last years first-round pick Najee Harris. Pittsburgh also offers Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren, and Mataeo Durant on its roster at running back.

The Steelers released veteran back Trey Edmunds as a corresponding roster proceed to bring about McNichols.
