Falcons Sign OLB David Anenih Off Steelers Practice Squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers are losing a player off their practice squad to the Atlanta Falcons this week.

According to the Falcons on Tuesday, they are signing outside linebacker David Anenih off the Steelers’ practice squad and he will take the spot on the team’s 53-man roster that was vacated by running back Caleb Huntley going on the Reserve/Injured list.

Anenih has been on the Steelers’ practice squad since October 11. Prior to that, he was on the Steelers’ 53-man roster after being signed off the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad on September 15. He was inactive for the three games that he was on the Steelers’ 53-man roster for.

Anenih has yet to appear in an NFL game yet during the regular season. He was an undrafted free agent in 2022 and originally signed by the Titans after starting 29 out of 56 games for the Houston Cougars between 2017-2021. At Houston, he totaled 98 tackles along with 20.5 sacks over the length of his career, including five sacks his senior season along with 10 tackles for loss.

The Steelers will now likely fill their vacant practice squad spot by Wednesday afternoon.
