The Steelers have released veteran running back Trey Edmunds, the team announced on Tuesday as it made its final cuts to get down to a 53-man roster.
Edmunds has been with the club since 2018, spending most of that time on the team’s practice squad, where he may once again be an option in 2021.
In three seasons in Pittsburgh, he’s played in 19 games and carried 22 times for 92 yards and two touchdowns. Edmunds is also a reliable special teams player and has played fullback at times. This preseason, he caught all four passes thrown to him, gaining 52 yards. Edmunds is the brother of Steelers starting strong safety Terrell Edmunds.
Edmunds 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, guard B.J. Finney, 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.
