PITTSBURGH — Of the 27 players that the Pittsburgh Steelers put on waivers on Tuesday, 26 have cleared, according to the NFL transactions page. They are free to be added to the team’s practice squad, or the practice squad or 53 man roster of any other NFL team.

Linebacker Tanner Muse was the lone exception, as he was claimed by the Los Angeles Chargers.

All of the players that the Steelers cut, starting on Saturday and leading up to the final cuts before the 4 p.m. Tuesday deadline, went through waivers at noon on Wednesday.

The following players all cleared:

QB Tanner Morgan

WR/KR Jordan Byrd
WR Dez Fitzpatrick
WR Dan Chisena

WR Aron Cruickshank
RB Darius Hagans
RB Xazavian Valladay
RB Greg Bell
IOL Ryan McCollum
G Bill Dunkle

NT Jonathan Marshall
NT Breiden Fehoko
DT Manny Jones
DT Jay Nyamwaya
OLB David Perales
OLB Toby Ndukwe

In addition three Steelers veterans that were released that did not need to clear waivers are also eligible to sign with any team:

TE Zach Gentry
OT Le’Raven Clark
ILB Nick Kwiatkoski

Now that waivers have cleared, the Steelers can sign up to 16 players to their practice squad. They can sign any player to their practice squad, whether they were with the Steelers or another team, as long as they have cleared waivers or been given their release. Nose tackle Breiden Fehoko has already been reported to have signed to the practice squad.
