Report: Steelers Negotiating with FA G Trai Turner after Releasing David DeCastro



The Steelers remain in talks with free agent guard Trai Turner after his visit to the team last week and Thursday’s release of starter David DeCastro, according to a report by NFL Network.

Turner visited the Steelers last Friday, and talks remain in progress, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Steelers have a significant amount of salary cap free with DeCastro’s release, which saved them over $8 million against their 2021 cap.

Turner made $8.8 million in salary and bonuses while playing for the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020. The 28-year-old former third-round draft pick and five-time pro Bowler was released by the Chargers in a cap-related move this spring.
