Darboh promoted to active roster

It's been a busy season of roster moves for the Steelers and that continued on Monday when the team promoted receiver Amara Darboh from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Darboh was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He played in 16 games his rookie season, finishing with eight receptions for 71 yards. He spent the 2018 season on the reserve/injured list but was released prior to the start of the 2019 season.

Darboh spent time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad at the start of this season and was promoted to their active roster on Oct. 16. He didn't see any playing time, inactive on game day, and was released on Nov. 5. He was signed to the Steelers practice squad on Nov. 18.

Darboh played college football at Michigan where he was a second-team All-Big 10 selection in 2016.

To make room for him on the roster the team released receiver Tevin Jones. Jones had four receptions for 61 yards this season after being promoted from the practice squad on Nov. 14.
