Steelers re-sign Corbin Bryant to practice squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers have brought defensive tackle Corbin Bryant back to their practice squad after some complicated roster shuffling over the past two weeks.

Bryant, who spent most of last year on the team's practice squad and was briefly on the active roster, was cut while the team trimmed its roster to 53 at the beginning of the season. Last Tuesday, when nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu was suspended, the Steelers brought him onto the roster to fill the extra roster spot and play defensive tackle in practice. His time on the team was short-lived, and the team cut him Saturday to promote offensive lineman John Malecki from the practice squad to the active roster due to an injury to center Maurkice Pouncey. Now, Bryant has cleared waivers and the Steelers are signing him, this time not to the active roster, but to the practice squad.

Bryant, a 6'4, 297-pound defensive tackle in his second year with Pittsburgh, has played one game for the Steelers since going undrafted out of Northwestern in 2011.
