Look at Reuben Frank with the scoop here.


Fort actually had what you could probably describe as a career year in 2018. He appeared in 15 games, logging 48 tackles and a sack with three quarterback hits. That was over the course of 305 snaps, which accounted for about 29% of the available defensive plays.

He really shined on special teams, where he played 73% of the snaps, which was more than any other player on the Steelers’ roster. I’d think of him as a LaRoy Reynolds type of contributor, but with much more of a chance to get defensive snaps and compete for a bigger role alongside Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Gerry.

Fort is 29 years old and spent the last four seasons in Pittsburgh.
