The Steelers signed two more players to Reserve/Future contracts, including running back Trey Edmunds and tackle Jarron Jones, joining 13 others signed on Thursday.
Edmunds, who was released on Jan. 12 from the Reserve/Injured List, spent time on the 53-man roster and practice squad throughout the 2020 season. Edmunds was elevated from the practice squad for the team's Week 5 and Week 7 games, before being promoted to the 53-man roster on Oct. 31. Edmunds, who began his NFL career with the New Orleans Saints, opened the 2019 season on the Steelers' practice squad before being promoted to the 53-man roster on Oct. 11. He played in 11 games with 22 carries for 92 yards and had six receptions for 48 yards. Edmunds also had one interception on a fake punt against the Los Angeles Rams. His best performance came against the Indianapolis Colts when he had 12 carries for 73 yards when both James Conner and Benny Snell were inactive due to injuries. In 2018 he spent 12 weeks on the team's practice squad before being added to the 53-man roster on Dec. 4. He played in four games in 2018, but finished the season without a carry, seeing action mostly on special teams.
Jones spent much of the season on the Steelers practice squad, before being placed on the Practice Squad/Injured List. He signed with the Steelers during the 2020 offseason after playing for the New York Guardians in the XFL. Jones originally entered the NFL with the New York Giants as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft. He was released by the Giants and signed to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad, switching from defensive line to offensive line. Jones played college football at Notre Dame where he was a defensive tackle. He had 59 tackles in his career, adding 19.5 tackles for a loss and 4.5 sacks. As a senior in 2016 he had 11 tackles for a loss, including six in a win over Miami.
