The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly cut tight end Dax Raymond and agreed to an injury settlement, according to the NFL transactions report for Sunday, Aug. 30.
Raymond suffered an ankle injury on the second day of full practices, and had been on injured reserve since clearing waivers last Monday. He will now become a free agent.
The Steelers signed Raymond back on July 20 after he had been waived by the Chicago Bears earlier this year. He signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State in 2019.
Raymond was a two-year started for the Aggies, catching 72 passes for 873 yards and three touchdowns. He was twice named All-Mountain West Conference.
Pittsburgh signed rookie tight end Kyle Markway to replace Raymond on the active roster on August 22.
