Steelers 2nd: OLB Delonta Scott is a sleeping car for teaming, Trent Scott is a deep work for OL

Editor’s Note: From now on to the first practice of the training camp at St. Vincent University, Trib will run through the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 90 roster to assess each player’s outlook for the 2022 season. The breakdown is from June 11th to July 25th, passing through the list twice a day in almost alphabetical order. Contract data provided by:


experience: One regular season game over two seasons since the draft was lifted in 2020 (2021, Steelers)

Contract status: Potential $ 705,000 cap hit in 2022 if he creates an active roster

2022 outlook: Scott made his NFL regular season debut in the Steelers’ November defeat at the Los Angeles Chargers last season, playing 7 snaps in defense and 2 snaps in a special team. That day, Scott was called by the training squad. He spent the entire season on the Steelers practice team.

Scott, 6 feet 5, 245 pounds, had 10 bags and 3 forced fumbles as a 5th grade SMU in 2019. He spent the rookie season on the Green Bay Packers practice team. The 2022 results will start again with the Steelers p-squad.

In a position where the Steelers struggled to find a reliable backup for starters TJ Watt and Alex Highsmith, Scott has a chance to sneak into the 53 roster spots. The Steelers must be intrigued by his college Pass Rush Productions (18 career sack). If Scott can demonstrate his abilities on a special team, he can find himself in the mix of OLB4 roles behind starter and veteran Jenard Avery. Scott fights the recently brought back Tuzar Shipper and the undrafted rookie TD Mortley and Tyreson, and enters the camp in search of a shot to get rid of the spot’s pencil inholder Derek Tushka. increase.


experience: 5th season

Contract status: A $ 895,000 cap hit occurred in 2022, followed by an unlimited number of free agents.

2022 outlook: Scott, who is familiar with the new offensive line coach Pat Mayer (this is the third NFL team they worked with), has been signed to act as a deep tackle. Veteran Joe Heg held a gig last season and did nothing to suggest that all the signs could cause him to lose his job, but he ended up with the number one “on both sides”. It can be a “swing” backup.

Scott has made 19 career starts in 53 NFL games that have appeared over four seasons since being drafted from Gram Ring in 2018 (there are several on either side of the line). The Steelers signed a one-year contract on May 13. After the free agency opens, and even after draft and rookie mini-camps.

The starting unit seems to be relatively set, but the Steelers have a lot of spare options along the attack line where you can play tackles. With a $ 3.1 million cap hit, Heg can’t feel completely safe — especially after Scott’s signature. Veteran Chaz Green, versatile John Regru (six-game fill-in starter last season), and rookie Jake Dixon and Jordan Tucker reasonably claim a roster spot for 53 or practice teams. You can hope. It’s a crowded room and Scott would have to show that he’s good enough to dodge all visitors.
