Pittsburgh Steelers release tight end Ladarius Green


The Pittsburgh Steelers have released tight end Ladarius Green.

After just one season, playing only six games, the Pittsburgh Steelers have released Ladarius Green, according to the team’s website. With Jesse James proving a lot last season while taking on the starting role, it appears Pittsburgh is ready to hand him the starting job.

During his five NFL seasons, the first four with the San Diego Chargers, Green has 95 receptions for 1,391 yards and 60 touchdowns. During his only season in Pittsburgh, Green accumulated just 18 receptions for 304 yards and a touchdown.

After signing a four year deal, many believed Green was the starter until James was ready to take the job. Well, it seems as though James may have done enough to secure the starting role moving forward.

The team will move into the 2017 season with James, Xavier Grimble, David Johnson, and Scott Orndoff. James and Grimble will see most of the action, while Johnson will see time at both tight end and fullback during games.

Pittsburgh has been full of roster moves these last few days, starting to shape their 90-man roster heading into OTA’s and Minicamp.
