PITTSBURGH, PA – The Pittsburgh Steelers resigned wide receiver Jaquarii Roberson to the practice squad this morning and released cornerback Mark Gilbert to make room for him.
Roberson, a rookie wideout who played his college ball at Wake Forest, had spent time with the Steelers before. They first signed him to the practice squad during Week 1 and released him following a win over the Bengals. The team rereleased him last week but has brought him back during this shortened Week 3.
Pittsburgh was Gilbert’s first stop in the NFL. He signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie in 2021 and joined the team’s practice squad to start the season. Gilbert was claimed by the Detroit Lions in Week 8 and played in eight games.
