PITTSBURGH — The Steelers have released kicker Sam Sloman as part of the team’s mandatory cut from 90 players to 85 on Tuesday.
Sloman, 23, signed with the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after previously spending time with the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams, who drafted him in 2020.
He was 3 of 4 on extra points and 1 of 2 on field goals in two preseason games with the Steelers, missing wide right from 49 yards, but hitting from 48 and 22.
Sloman was drafted by the Rams in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Miami University in Ohio. He started the season as the Rams’ primary kicker, and played in seven games, making 8 of 11 field goals and 18 of 21 extra points.
Sloman was waived on Oct. 27 and was signed to the Titans’ practice squad on Nov. 24. The Titans elevated him to the active roster for their final regular season game, and he made two field goals and five extra points.
Defensive tackle Abdullah Anderson, cornerback Stephen Denmark, wide receiver Isaiah McKoy, and tackle Brandon Walton were cut along with Sloman. The Steelers must further cut from 85 players to 80 by Tuesday, Aug, 24.
