Steelers 2021 Undrafted Free Agent Tracker: All signings and rumors – Behind the Steel Curtain
With the 2021 NFL Draft now in the books, the Pittsburgh Steelers will quickly switch their attention to eligible prospects who went undrafted. Long before the seventh-round ended, the Steelers will have reached out to players they were interested in who were expected to be available and it should not take long for the first few signings to be made.
Undrafted players are allowed to sign with whoever they chose, with the more popular names likely to be given a signing bonus to encourage them to pick one team over another.
It is worth noting than none of these signings are official until confirmed by the team, with players sometimes changing their mind about a destination at the last minute when another team offers a higher signing bonus.
As rumors begin to emerge of players Pittsburgh is targeting, we will add them in this post, as well as any confirmed signings from the players own social media accounts.
