Nix joined the Steelers as a Reserve/Future signee on January 9, 2015. He played in 15 games, making three starts, as a first-year player and recorded eight tackles and one forced fumble on special teams.

The 10 players signed to Reserve/Future contracts are S Jordan Dangerfield, OT Matt Feiler, C/G B.J Finney, DB Isaiah Frey, TE Xavier Grimble, DE Cashaud Lyons, RB Rajion Neal, WR Shakim Phillips, RB Abou Toureand S Ray Vinpoal.

Nine of the 10 Reserve/Future signees ended the Steelers' 2015 season on the team's Practice Squad.

Vinopal, a University of Pittsburgh product, signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft and was released prior to the regular season.
