Myles Jack, who retired from the game in the middle of training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles, has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ practice squad. The Steelers are in need of inside linebacker help following season-ending injuries to Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander in recent weeks. Elandon Roberts and Mykal Walker filled in during the team’s recent loss to Cleveland.
After spending the 2021 season with Pittsburgh, Jack signed with Philadelphia in August but retired two weeks later. The 28-year-old linebacker led the Steelers in tackles last season, but injuries slowed him down towards the end of the season, leading to his release in March.
Now, Pittsburgh is looking to add depth at inside linebacker and has turned to Jack for assistance. With Jack’s experience and previous success with the Steelers, the team is hopeful that he can provide support and contribute to their defense.
