Pittsburgh Steelers News

Anthony McFarland Jr., Sticks with Pittsburgh

The Steelers signed McFarland to a reserve/future contract Thursday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: McFarland spent the first two seasons of his career on Pittsburgh's active roster, but he moved down to the practice squad after getting waived in late August. The 2020 fourth-round pick was elevated when rookie Jaylen Warren was inactive with a hamstring injury Week 12, recording six carries for 30 yards as well as two receptions for 11 yards during this lone appearance in 2022. McFarland's experience with the team should keep him in contention for a backup running back role heading into the 2023 campaign.

James Washington, Gets opportunity with Giants

The Giants signed Washington to their practice squad Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Once he made a recovery from the fractured right foot he suffered in training camp, Washington struggled to carve out playing time in a crowded Dallas receiver room. Upon being cleared for his Cowboys debut in Week 14, Washington went on to play just 14 snaps over his two games with Dallas before being waived last week. Washington didn't have to wait long to find a new opportunity with another playoff team, and given the underwhelming state of the Giants' receiving corps, it wouldn't be surprising if he was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Vikings. Even if Washington doesn't debut with the Giants during the postseason, his presence on the practice squad will at least allow the organization to evaluate him for a potential signing heading into the 2023 season.

Matthew Wright, Moves back to practice squad

Wright reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Wright was brought up from the practice squad to serve as Kansas City's emergency kicker behind starter Harrison Butker, who was considered questionable to play with a back issue. However, with Butker available, the practice-squad kicker was ultimately ruled inactive pregame. Wright could be elevated again if Butker's health status either worsens or remains the same heading into the Chiefs' first playoff game during the divisional round of the playoffs.

Benny Snell Jr., Limited to special teams in Week 18

Snell played exclusively on special teams during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Analysis: The 24-year-old lost out on his role as the No. 2 running back to undrafted rookie Jaylen Warren in 2022, and Snell wasn't on the field for any offensive snaps over the final four weeks of the regular season. The 2019 fourth-rounder rushed 20 times for 90 yards while securing both of his targets for 17 yards this season. Snell is set to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him seek out another team since he's lost out on work in Pittsburgh over the last two years.

Chris Boswell, Ends season on high note

Boswell converted both of his field-goal attempts while making all three of his extra-point tries during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Analysis: Boswell had missed at least one field-goal attempt in three of his four appearances leading up to Sunday's regular-season finale, but he was perfect against Cleveland to help the Steelers finish the year with a winning record. The 31-year-old missed five games in 2022 due to his groin injury, but he appeared in 12 matchups and made 20 of 28 field-goal attempts while converting all 18 of his extra-point tries. Boswell made 92.3 percent of his field-goal attempts over the three seasons prior to 2022 and re-signed with the Steelers on a four-year deal in August of 2022, so he'll likely continue to serve as Pittsburgh's kicker next year despite his 71.4 percent field-goal conversion rate this season.
