Steelers add DT Corbin Bryant, sign OL Jacques McClendon

The Pittsburgh Steelers added Corbin Bryant to their active roster with the roster spot vacated by the suspended Alameda Ta'amu, in addition to adding offensive guard Jacques McClendon to the team's practice squad.

With Ta'amu suspended for two games after his DUI, the Steelers had the option to add a player to their roster and chose Bryant, a second-year player out of Northwestern. Bryant, a defensive tackle, has been on the team's practice squad for nearly his entire tenure in the NFL since going undrafted in 2011, the lone exception being a single game he appeared in for the Steelers towards the end of last season. The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder will likely replace fellow defensive tackle Ta'amu on the team's depth chart.

The team also added McClendon, a third-year player out of Tennessee, to take Bryant's spot on the practice squad. McClendon was drafted in the fourth round by the Colts in 2010, but didn't stick with the team, only appearing in four games. He was most recently with the Detroit Lions practice squad.

Pittsburgh also released Jamie McCoy, a tight end out of Texas A&M who was on the practice squad. He has yet to play in an NFL game since going undrafted in 2010.
