The Steelers claimed offensive tackle Jake Rodgers off waivers Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Houston waived him Tuesday.

Rodgers, 25, signed with the Texans’ practice squad on December 21. Houston signed him to a reserve/futures contract after the season.

He has never played in a regular-season game.

The Falcons made Rodgers a seventh-round draft pick in 2015. Atlanta waived him before the regular season, and the Giants signed him to their practice squad late that season.

Rodgers also has spent time on the Chargers, Steelers and Panthers’ practice squads.

  1. If he couldn’t manage to crack the lineup on the Giants, Panthers or Chargers..considering the condition of their o-lines recently, I doubt he has much of a chance.

  2. “He has never played in a regular-season game.” Sound like a Steelers’ starter.

    Sure does….you know the kind that body slammed the pitiful Ravens twice last year…..you remember those games well I bet.

  4. Steelers will likely start him against Jacksonville when they receive their third straight beatdown.
