PRO: After signing with Dallas as a rookie free agent following the 2020 NFL Draft, Terence Steele could have been considered a long shot to make the roster, but with a rash of injuries to the offensive line through training camp and the season, the Cibolo, Texas native not only earned a roster spot, but he also took on the starting right tackle job in place of La'el Collins (hip). Steele gained valuable NFL experience as a rookie, starting 14 of the 16 games he played, and will count on that as he makes a push in 2021 for a role on Dallas' offensive line that should return to full health.
