The Steelers have released former draft pick Derwin Gray, the team announced on Saturday.
Gray was the team’s seventh-round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Maryland.
He was waived on Aug. 31, 2019 and signed to the practice squad, while the team moved him to guard after having played tackle with the Terrapins.
The Steelers signed him to a reserve/future contract on Dec. 30 for the 2020 season.
Despite a number of injuries along the interior of the Steelers’ offensive line, Gray could not beat out rookie Kevin Dotson and veteran backup J.C. Hassenauer for playing time.
Gray is the 16th 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, offensive lineman Christian DiLauro and John Keenoy outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper, punter Corliss Waitman, quarterback Paxton Lynch, running backs Trey Edmunds, Wendell Smallwood and Kerrith Whyte, Jr., tight end Kyle Markway,and wide receivers Deon Cain, Saeed Blacknall, Ryan Switzer and DeAndre Thompkins.
