Former Ohio State Linebacker Steele Chambers Claimed By Patriots

By June 12, 2024 (3:19 pm)Football

Former Ohio State linebacker Steele Chambers was claimed by the New England Patriots on Tuesday just one day after he was waived by the Detroit Lions. 

Chambers initially signed with Detroit as an undrafted free agent on April 27 — one of four Buckeyes who signed with an NFL franchise after going undrafted in the 2024 NFL draft — but was waived on Monday despite taking the field with the team for rookie minicamp this spring. 

He will now look to carve out a reserve role on a New England roster that, according to ESPN, holds 10 other linebackers, a group that includes last season’s starters Ja’Whuan Bentley and Matthew Judon along with former Buckeye Raekown McMillan. 

With Chambers now claimed by the Patriots, eight out of the nine Buckeyes who entered the NFL draft this offseason have now found a home in the NFL, a list that includes draft picks Tommy Eichenberg (Las Vegas Raiders), Michael Hall Jr. (Cleveland Browns), Marvin Harrison Jr. (Arizona Cardinals) and Cade Stover (Houston Texans) along with undrafted free agents Xavier Johnson (Buffalo Bills), Matt Jones (Miami Dolphins), Josh Proctor (Jacksonville Jaguars). 

Running back Miyan Williams is the lone Buckeye that remains unsigned.
