Steelers add two players to their practice squad prior to Week 5

The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing for the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5, and leading up to the big AFC North game the team had to do some roster shuffling. No, not their 53-man roster, but the 16-man practice squad.

Tuesday, the same day Mike Tomlin addressed the media, the team announced they signed two players to the practice squad. Those two players were offensive lineman Obinna Eze and wide receiver Denzel Mims.

This per the Steelers official Twitter/X account:

For more information on Eze, this is from the Steelers official website:

“Eze was signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent following the 2022 NFL Draft. He spent the majority of the 2022 season on the Lions practice squad, finishing the year on the Practice Squad/Injured List.

“He played one season at Texas Christian University where he started all 12 games at left tackle in 2021, giving him 37 consecutive starts to finish his college career. He was named Honorable Mention Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year.

“Eze spent four years at Memphis, where he started 14 games in 2019 and was a member of an offensive line that helped the school to its first American Athletic Conference Championship.”

As for Mims, his NFL resume is more than what Eze brings to the Steelers organization. This also is from the Steelers website:

“Mims spent part of the offseason and preseason with the Detroit Lions, after they acquired him via a trade with the New York Jets.

“Mims spent his first three seasons in the league with the Jets, who selected him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

“He has played in 30 career games, starting 15, and has 42 receptions for 676 yards, a 16.1-yard average. He had his most productive season in 2020 when he had 23 receptions for 357 yards in nine games, starting eight of them.”
