The Steelers have released quarterback Devlin Hodges and safety Curtis Riley, the team announced on Sunday.
Hodges and Riley were let go in order to make room for recently signed safety Sean Davis and quarterback Josh Dobbs, who was claimed on waivers.
Hodges joined the Steelers as a rookie tryout out of FCS Sanford last season and a strong preseason performance led the team to trade Dobbs to Jacksonville.
Hodges was then promoted from the training camp to the active roster, and after injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph, ended up playing in eight games.
In those games, Hodges completed 100 of 160 for 1,063 yards, five touchdowns and eight interceptions. The Steelers went 4-4 with Hodges as a starter.
