Steelers make practice squad moves

The Steelers made changes to their practice squad on Tuesday, signing linebacker/long snapper Christian Kuntz and offensive tackle John Leglue, while placing offensive tackle Jarron Jones on the Practice Squad/Injured List.

Kuntz, a Pittsburgh native, was previously signed to the practice squad on Nov. 24 but was released on Dec. 23. He originally joined the team during the 2019 preseason but was released a few weeks later when the team cut down to the 53-man roster. He was also with the Steelers this offseason and during training camp. Kuntz also spent time with the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars. He played at Chartiers Valley High School and collegiately at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. He finished with a school record 30.5 sacks, winning two Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year awards and is the only player in school history to earn All-American honors three times.

Leglue entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, signing with the Denver Broncos following the 2019 NFL Draft. He was released by the Broncos following the 2019 training camp and was signed to the New Orleans Saints practice squad. The Green Bay Packers signed Leglue off the Saints practice squad on Dec. 21, 2019. Leglue played at Tulane where he started 38 of the 49 games he played in. The versatile lineman has started four different positions, including right and left tackle, right guard and center.

Jones, who signed with the Steelers in the offseason as a free agent, has been on the practice squad all season.
