Thomas signed as roster moves continue

As is often the norm during training camp the Steelers roster changed once again on Thursday.

The team signed rookie cornerback Derrek Thomas to a one-year contract.

Thomas originally signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft, but was released on July 24 prior to the start of training camp.

Thomas played at Temple (2014-17), but transferred the Baylor in 2018, following his former coach, Matt Rhule. He started 11 of 13 games for Baylor, finishing the season with 21 tackles, an interception and seven passes broken up.

To make room for Thomas, the team waived/injured cornerback Herb Waters.

On Wednesday the Steelers were awarded receiver Brandon Reilly off waivers and released Alexander Myres.
