Steelers make addition of CB Darius Rush official

The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off their bye week, and they are starting the process of trying to find the best possible way to improve the team. While most people assume that will come in the form of improved offense and defense, it also can come by the way of changing the roster.

Tuesday evening it was reported the Steelers were signing cornerback Darius Rush off the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad, and today the team made the move official.

To make room on the roster, the team released veteran cornerback Desmond King.

It is important to note that when an NFL team signs a player off another team’s practice squad, they have to place them on the 53-man roster. This would be the corresponding move to add Rush to their roster. As for what Rush brings to the team, here is a little background on him.

Rush played his college football at South Carolina, and was drafted in the 5th Round in the 2023 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. He was cut by the Colts and signed off waivers by the Chiefs. He was waived by the Chiefs and signed to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

The 6’1″ 198 pound cornerback will come to the Steelers looking to find a more permanent NFL home. Be sure to stay tuned to SCN for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.
