Steelers fan favorite OLB Quincy Roche back with Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed outside linebacker Quincy Roche to a reserve/future contract for the upcoming 2023 season.

Roche tweeted, “let’s finish what we started,” and seems eager to get back to work with the team who drafted him in the 6th round, pick 216 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

For those who don’t remember, the New York Giants claimed Roche on waivers in 2021, leaving most Steelers fans questioning why he was not on the 53-man roster. Since leaving Pittsburgh, he’s recorded 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and 40 total tackles, 23 of which were solo.

Roche will be given a chance to make the 2023 Steelers 53-man roster providing much-needed depth at the outside linebacker position. Pittsburgh could use more pass rushers behind TJ Watt and Alex Highsmith, which Roche will more than likely offer.

The Steelers are already filling up their roster, as they currently sit at 81 of 90 players allowed. I have no doubt Roche will be among the final 53, depending on his performance at the 2023 Steelers training camp.
