ILB Overhaul: Steelers Release Myles Jack



Steelers ILB Myles Jack

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released linebacker Myles Jack, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Jack, 27, spent one season in Pittsburgh, starting 13 games for the club in 2022 at inside linebacker. He led the team with 103 tackles and also had three tackles for loss, one quarterback hit and three passes defended.

He dealt with injuries throughout the 2022 season, especially later in the year. He played just 42 snaps over the final four weeks of the season.

By releasing Jack, the Steelers will trim $8 million from their 2023 salary cap rolls, while introducing a $3.25 million dead cap hit. It appears that the team has already replaced Jack by signing free agent linebackers Cole Holcolmb from the Washington Commanders and Elandon Roberts from the Miami Dolphins.

Jack will be at least the third departure from the Steelers inside linebacker corps from the 2022, and more will likely follow. Robert Spillane has already signed with the Las Vegas Raiders and Devin Bush has a visit scheduled with the Seattle Seahawks for Thursday.

The Steelers also turned over their coaching staff at the position, as the team lost senior defensive assistant Brian Flores and did not retain inside linebackers coach Jerry Olsavsky. Former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Aaron Curry is the team’s new inside linebackers coach.
