The Steelers have released veteran wide receiver Ryan Switzer, according to a report by Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Switzer, 25, is coming off his least productive season as a professional, playing in nine games in 2019 before being shut down for the season with an injury and making just eight catches for 27 yards.
A North Carolina alum and West Virginia native, Switzer came to Pittsburgh in a trade from the Oakland Raiders in 2018. In two seasons in Pittsburgh, he had 44 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown, while also serving a significant role as a return man.
Switzer is the seventh player to be released by the Steelers since the end of training camp on Friday, joining cornerback Trajan Bandy, defensive end Henry Mondeaux, defensive tackle Cavon Walker, outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper, punter Corliss Waitman and tight end Kyle Markway.
