According to NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala, free agent Taco Charlton is currently undergoing a physical exam with the Pittsburgh Steelers. If all goes well, the team should sign him to their practice squad.
Charlton is a former Dallas Cowboys first-round pick. He spent two seasons in Dallas, playing 27 games, including seven starts. He then signed with the Miami Dolphins in 2019 and the Kansas City Chiefs in 2020, playing 17 games combined.
Charlton is an interesting free agent for many 6’6, 275-pound teams. The Michigan star is said to have met with the Green Bay Packers this week to discuss a possible signing there as well.
The Steelers face multiple injuries on the defensive line. Defensive end Stephon Tuitt and nose tackle Tyson Alualu are both in the injured reserve. Carlos Davis suffers from a knee injury.
