Steelers make Kwon Alexander signing official, release lineman
The Pittsburgh Steelers General Manager (GM) Omar Khan has made a name for himself in the short time he’s been the GM for the team, and that would be his “leave no stone unturned” approach to roster building.
Whether you are talking about his free agent moves at the start of the new league year in March, his 2023 NFL Draft, or his continued approach to adding pieces of the puzzle to help solidify the Steelers’ current roster. It doesn’t matter what time of the year, Khan has made it apparent he wants to give the team every opportunity to put a winning product on the field.
The latest move by Khan and the new-look front office was the signing of Kwon Alexander. The news broke Saturday evening the Steelers were signing Alexander, and the organization made the move official Sunday morning as the team prepares to wrap up their first week of training camp practices at Saint Vincent College.

To make room for Alexander on the roster, the team had to release a player so they were under the 90-man offseason roster limit. To do so the Steelers released offensive lineman Jarrod Williams.

For those who are curious about thing like jersey numbers, Alexander will wear No. 26 for the Steelers, at least for now. There is always the chance when teams trim their rosters a veteran like Alexander would decide to go with a different number.
Nonetheless, Alexander will practice Sunday with the team, and will meet with the media following the workout. So, be sure to stay tuned to SCN for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the rest of training camp.
