Wilcox became expendable when the Buccaneers reportedly landed free agent safety T.J. Ward earlier on Sunday.
The Steelers keeping five safeties on the 53-man roster is hardly a guarantee. As part of the International Player Pathway program, it allows the Bucs an exemption for an 11th practice squad member.
Wilcox spent most of his career with the Dallas Cowboys and had 38 career starts in four seasons. In addition to Mitchell, backup Jordan Dangerfield suffered an ankle injury in the team's final preseason game.
The 30-year-old Ward started 14 games last season and recorded 69 tackles, one sack and one interception.
With the timing of his trade coming so soon to the start of the regular season, the first opportunity Wilcox will have to suit up as a member of the Steelers will come when the team opens their season on September 10 on the road against the Cleveland Browns.
His professional career got underway when the Cowboys selected him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Georgia Southern, where he was named First-team All-Southern during his senior season. They will need to make one move tonight to create space and another on Monday when running back Le'Veon Bell signs his franchise tender.
Ward is now set to join a safety corps which includes Keith Tandy, Chris Conte, J.J. Wilcox and rookie Justin Evans and will making his case as to why he deserves a starting role this season.
