Steelers Cut Veteran OL B.J. Finney



The Pittsburgh Steelers have released veteran offensive lineman B.J. Finney, the team announced on Tuesday, as part of its final cut down to a 53-man roster.

Finney re-joined the team as a free agent this spring after spending one season with the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals. He originally joined the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and played in 59 games while making 13 starts at both center and guard from 2016-19.

This season, Finney worked mostly as the second-team right guard behind veteran starter Trai Turner and hardly worked at center at all, with rookie Kendrick Green and J.C. Hassenauer dominating the reps at that position. The Steelers kept just eight offensive linemen on their initial 53-man roster.

Finney was among 14 players removed from the active roster on Tuesday as the Steelers cut down to the NFL-mandated 53-man limit before the 4 p.m. deadline.

The Steelers also cut guard Rashaad Coward, running back Trey Edmunds, cornerback Mark Gilbert, tackle Chaz Green, tackle John Leglue, outside linebacker Cassius Marsh, cornerback Arthur Maulet, tight end Kevin Rader, outside linebacker Quincy Roche, running back Jaylen Samuels, safety Donovan Stiner and wide receiver Cody White.

Additionally, quarterback Josh Dobbs was placed on injured reserve.
