The former 2017 four-star recruit from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania inked a deal on Saturday night with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent.

Jeter was with the Wolverines since 2017 and was a four-year letterman with Michigan. Jeter appeared in 37 career games with four starts during that span.

This past season was Jeter’s best season statistically, and he was a really good rotational defensive tackle for Michigan. Jeter had 24 total tackles on the season. His claim to fame came back in 2020 at Minnesota when Jeter returned a fumble for a touchdown.

Jeter is headed to Pittsburgh where he will try and crack the opening day roster, but the practice squad could be a legit possibility for the former Wolverine. Jeter has done a really good job at Michigan as a rotational piece, and that could exactly be what coach Mike Tomlin is thinking about doing.

Jeter really couldn’t ask for a better place to go to learn the NFL game — Mike Tomlin has been known as a defensive guru.
