Steelers Re-Sign Berhe; Add One to IR

The Steelers may have made their final cuts on Saturday, but NFL rosters are in a constant state of change. Players that are out of work one day can have a roster spot the next.

This is the case for safety Nat Berhe, who was re-signed to the Steelers 53-man roster Tuesday evening after the team placed rookie linebacker Olasunkanmi Adeniyi on injured reserve.

In all likelihood the move to release and re-sign Berhe was made to protect Adeniyi from any waiver claims, but the Steelers are happy to have the special teams ace on the active roster nonetheless.

Nicknamed ‘The Missile,’ Berhe impressed in the preseason with nine tackles, as well as four on special teams.

The Giants former fifth-round draft pick signed with the Steelers this off-season as an unrestricted free agent in the hopes that he would improve the play on special teams, as well as bring another veteran presence to the locker room.

With the season opener in Cleveland being only six days away, be sure to keep your eyes peeled on the opening kickoff, because there’s sure to be a ‘Missile’ ready for launch.
