The Steelers have released undrafted rookie cornerback Trajan Bandy, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Bandy, 21, joined the Steelers in April after going undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 5-foot-9, 186-pound corner played 36 games over three seasons at Miami, racking up 90 tackles, nine tackles for loss, three sacks, four interceptions and 23 passes defended.
With the Steelers, Bandy worked mostly as a slot corner, but the team elected to keep just two players at that position, veterans Mike Hilton and Cam Sutton.
Bandy is the fifth player to be released by the Steelers since the end of training camp on Friday, joining defensive end Henry Mondeaux, defensive tackle Cavon Walker, outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper and tight end Kyle Markway.
