Steelers re-signing dependable defensive lineman

Montravius Adams has found a home in Pittsburgh in recent years, and the Steelers will continue to hang on to the defensive lineman. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers are re-signing Adams. The veteran will get a new two-year deal from the Steelers.

Steelers re-signing dependable defensive lineman

Adams spent parts of the 2021 campaign in New England and New Orleans before catching on with the Steelers. He started four of his five appearances down the stretch of that season and he’s started 17 of his 30 appearances over the past two campaigns.

The 28-year-old has combined for 50 tackles over the past two years and he finished this past season with a forced fumble and a pair of tackles for loss. Pro Football Focus ranked him 72nd among 130 qualifying interior defenders this past season, with the site being particularly bullish on his pass-rush skills.

Rookie Keeanu Benton leaped Adams on the depth chart this past season. When the veteran returned from a mid-season leg injury, he was playing on about a third of his team’s defensive snaps. Barring a move, Adams will likely be eyeing a similar backup role in 2024.
