Walton was brought in for a tryout earlier in the week. The Steelers had an extra spot open on the practice squad after Derwin Gray was elevated to the 53 man roster. Stefen Wisniewski and Zach Banner were placed on IR this week while David DeCastro will miss his second game.
Walron, 6’5 300, was a UDFA signed by the Buffalo Bills following this year’s draft. He initially signed to their practice squad earlier this month but was released on the 8th. He’s been on the tryout circuit since then, working out with the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks.
