On Monday, US time, according to NFL Network reporters, the Steelers officially signed a one-year contract with passer Melvin Ingram.
After Bud Dupree left the team for the Titans, the Steelers needed Ingram to fill the vacancy.
Ingram told reporters: “I have talked with coach Mike Tomlin before. I can see that he is a coach who cares about the players. I am very impressed. He wants to win, and I have this intention .”
“He just told me to join in and be yourself. Everyone knows my playing style.” cheap nike nfl jerseys
Ingram will compete with the second-year outside linebacker Alex Highsmith for the starting position, and T.J. Watt has already taken the starting position on the other side. At present, in addition to these two players, the steelers’ main outside linebackers are only Cassius Marsh (Cassius Marsh) and sixth-round pick Quincy Roche (Quincy Roche).
Ingram played for the Lightning for 9 years, completed 49 sacks, ranked 4th in team history, and was selected to the Pro Bowl in the three consecutive seasons of 2017-2019.
