This isn’t the first time I’ve broached this topic. But each year it fails to change, the larger the issue looms. The Pittsburgh Steelers have a serious UDFA problem. And it doesn’t take long to realize it.
Since the UDFA class of 2016 to present day, the immediate group of players Pittsburgh’s signed have played – total – 166 snaps. Offense, defense, and yes, I’m throwing special teams in there too. Here’s the breakdown
Matthew Thomas/LB (2018): 99 snaps
Johnny Maxey/DL (2016): 58 snaps
Ola Adeiniyi/OLB (2018): 9 snaps
