Former Steelers lineman R.J. Prince joins Baltimore Ravens

Former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman R.J. Prince (64) was signed by the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, May 16, 2019.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost another former player to their biggest division rival.

The Baltimore Ravens on Thursday signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was waived by the Steelers on Monday.

Prince, an undrafted free agent from North Carolina, spent the 2018 season on the Steelers’ practice squad. He was among a group of players let go by the organization earlier this week when five players were signed from the Steelers’ rookie minicamp, including offensive lineman Damian Prince of Maryland.

R.J. Prince is a 6-foot-6, 311-pound lineman who started at guard for North Carolina.

Prince is the second player from the Steelers to join the Ravens since the end of the season. In January, inside linebacker Matthew Thomas joined Baltimore on a futures contract.

Thomas was an undrafted free agent in 2018 from Florida State who made the initial 53-man roster but ended the year on the Steelers’ practice squad.
