Steelers Sign Former Dolphins Cornerback
The Pittsburgh Steelers added a defensive backfield depth component.
PITTSBURGH, PA — This week, the Pittsburgh Steelers are adding depth to their defensive backfield.
All Steelers has discovered that the Steelers have acquired Eric Rowe, a former Philadelphia Eagle, New England Patriot, Miami Dolphin, and Carolina Panther, to their practice squad this week.
With Elijah Riley suffering an ankle injury against the Browns this past weekend, Rowe can provide insurance for the Steelers’ poor secondary.
Rowe hasn’t played in an NFL game since the final week of the 2022-23 season, when he had three tackles and a forced fumble against the New York Jets for the Miami Dolphins.
Rowe has played in the NFL for eight seasons, appearing in 100 games and starting 56 of them. He’s had 5 interceptions, 41 passes defended, and 381 total tackles. During his three years with the Patriots, Rowe was a two-time Super Bowl champion.
Rowe was last with the Panthers as a member of their practice squad through Week 2 of the 2023-24 season. He was released in the middle of September of this year.
