Pittsburgh Steelers Sign Linebacker Following Career Year

They wasted no time replacing Myles Jack.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are bolstering their linebacker unit with the signing of Elandon Roberts, formerly of the Miami Dolphins, on a two-year contract.

Roberts enjoyed an impressive season last year, recording career highs in tackles (107) and sacks (4.5) across 17 regular-season games.

As he approaches his 29-year-old season, Roberts' steadily improved his numbers over the past three seasons, making him a valuable addition to the Steelers' defense. 

In addition to Roberts, the Steelers also earlier signed linebacker Cole Holcomb from the Washington Commanders on a three-year deal. They'll likely pair the two together.

The two new signings demonstrate the Steelers' commitment to strengthening their defense during the legal tampering period.

With these strategic moves, the team aims to reinforce crucial positions in their linebacker unit and improve overall defensive performance in the coming seasons. 

Over his seven seasons in the NFL, Roberts has recorded 457 total tackles, 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, one interception and 10 passes defended across 107 games played.
