Earlier in the week, the Steelers had come to terms with second-round pick Chase Claypool, third-rounder Alex Highsmith, Anthony McFarland, the first of their two fourth-round picks, and Antoine Brooks, their sixth-round selection.

The Steelers have not yet set a hard date on when those rookies will report for training camp, but teams can have veteran players begin reporting July 28. Rookies have been able to report to team facilities since last Tuesday.

Dotson, an All-America guard last season at Louisiana, was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine last year. But he made 52 career starts for the Ragin’ Cajuns.
