Steven Sims Jr., Remains with Steelers

The Steelers signed Sims to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sims joined the Steelers' practice squad in late September and was elevated to the active roster once during the 2021 campaign. He played just four offensive snaps in the team's Week 10 tie against the Lions and will now remain with the organization heading into the offseason.

Jeremy Sprinkle, Fills depth role in 2021

Sprinkle caught all three of his targets for 31 yards across 17 games this season.

Analysis: While he played every game for the fourth straight year, Sprinkle was primarily used as a blocker for his snaps on offense, and all three of his grabs came in the final four weeks of the regular season. The 27-year-old tight end is a free agent this offseason, but if he returns to Dallas in 2022 he could see more opportunities as a receiver with Dalton Schultz also a free agent and Blake Jarwin having trouble staying healthy.

Dwayne Haskins, Could get shot at No. 1 job?

Haskins believes he'll have a chance to compete for Pittsburgh's starting quarterback job in 2022, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Ben Roethlisberger set to retire and Joshua Dobbs (IR/toe) scheduled for free agency, Haskins and Mason Rudolph are the two QBs under contract with Pittsburgh for 2022. The team does figure to explore out-of-house options, of course, but there is a scenario where Haskins and Rudolph end up competing for the No. 1 job. Haskins didn't play at all in 2021, but the Steelers reportedly were pleased with his work on the practice field.

Samaje Perine, One carry against Raiders

Perine had one carry for two yards without any targets in the passing game in Saturday's playoff win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Perine occasionally was in the game on third down for Joe Mixon, but for the most part it was the Mixon show. Teammate Chris Evans got as much work as Perine.

Dustin Hopkins, Solid campaign with Bolts

Hopkins connected on 18 of his 20 field-goal attempts with the Chargers and also made 30 of his 32 extra-point attempts. Combined with his six-game stint with Washington, the veteran finished the 2021 season 30 of 34 on field-goal attempts and 40 of 44 on extra points.

Analysis: Three of Hopkins' four misses came on attempts from 50-plus yards, a continuation of a three-year slump when it comes to long-distance kicks for the 30-year-old. After a seven-year stint with Washington, the franchise cut him halfway through the 2021 season and the Chargers almost immediately scooped him up, stabilizing the kicker position for the most part from that point forward. It seems likely Hopkins will be retained by the Chargers, although don't rule out someone with a bigger leg being added as competition this offseason.
