The Steelers have released punter Corliss Waitman, according to a report by Brooke Pryor of ESPN.
Waitman signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent on April 28 after finishing his career at South Alabama in 2018. He sat out the 2019 season at Mississippi State.
Waitman battled Steelers incumbent Jordan Berry throughout training camp. Berry improved his punting average in 2019 to 45.5 yards per kick last season after positing 43.2 and 43.7 averages in 2017 and 2018.
Waitman is the sixth 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 and tight end Kyle Markway.
