Only one day after being released, the Tennessee Titans released me. outside linebacker Ola Adeniyi has returned to work with his former team. ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter reports that the Pittsburgh Steelers signed the free edge rusher.
Adeniyi was an undrafted free agent from Toledo, Ohio in 2018, when he joined the Steelers. After signing with the Titans in 2020, Adeniyi was a Steeler undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2018. Adeniyi had 2.5 tackles in 2021 while playing for Tennessee, but was placed on short-term IR because of a neck injury. He was activated by the Titans on December 3, and released on December 12.
If he’s healthy, Adeniyi could be a good third edge rusher for the Steelers to add to the rotation along with T.J. Watt or Alex Highsmith. Adeniyi could be a spark for the Steelers, who have struggled to sack the quarterback all season.
