Steelers Sign Edge Rusher

Getting his chance.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed edge rusher Mike Tafua to their practice squad.

Tafua is coming off a great 2021 season where he recorded 48 total tackles and 9.5 sacks. He claimed the Pac-12 Morris Trophy in addition to All-Conference honors. 

The twenty-six-year-old finished his college career at Utah with 130 tackles and 17.5 sacks over four years. 

The 6-foot-3, 250 pounds edge rusher is an undrafted free agent and will look to make his NFL debut with the Steelers down the stretch.
