Pittsburgh showed interest in Jack late last week after he cleared waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles. The Steelers have taken hits to their linebacker group this season, losing Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander for the year.
Myles Jack: Making Return to the Pittsburgh Steelers
Jack, the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, started 13 games for the Steelers in 2022. He tallied 104 tackles, three passes defended, and one QB hit for one of the better defensive units in the league. He spent the 2023 preseason with the Philadelphia Eagles but never played in a regular season game.
Jack spent his first six seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, posting two 100-tackle campaigns while recovering four fumbles in 88 games. His best season came in 2020, collecting a career-high 118 tackles, two fumble recoveries, and an interception.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Linebacker Depth
The Steelers have had a revolving door at the inside linebacker position all season. Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander have been lost for the season, leaving former seventh-round pick Mark Robinson and former Patriots standout Elandon Roberts to pick up the pieces. Rookie Nick Herbig and backup Tariq Carpenter are also in the mix. Jack could immediately get elevated to the active roster as early as Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
