Spencer, 26, scored seven touchdowns and hauled in 1,007 receiving yards last season, his second with the Redblacks.

He also set the CFL’s single-game yardage record against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2017, racking up 496 all-purpose yards.

The Redblacks announced Spencer’s release Friday afternoon, shortly after the Steelers revealed in a tweet that they’d signed the four-year CFL veteran.

Spencer had previously worked out for other NFL clubs, including the Baltimore Ravens.

He was set to become a CFL free agent next month.
