The Steelers activated defensive tackle Montravius Adams from the Reserve/COVID-19 List. Adams was placed on the list on Dec. 15.
Adams was signed by the Steelers on Nov. 30 off the New Orleans Saints practice squad and has been a good addition to the line. He has played in two games and has four tackles to date.
Adams was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Packers, playing in 45 games and starting three. He had 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The Saints claimed Adams off waivers prior to the season, and he has been on the practice squad and played in five games, including one start, in 2021. He has seven tackles this season.
