Steelers Release Rookie ILB Calvin Bundage



PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers have released rookie inside linebacker Calvin Bundage, the team announced on Tuesday.

Bundage, a rookie free agent out of Oklahoma State, had been released once already this offseason, but re-signed with the team after the surprise retirement of Vince Williams on the eve of training camp.

Bundage played in the team’s first two preseason games and recorded just one tackle. He had been the Steelers’ No. 7 inside linebacker, behind Devin Bush, Joe Schobert, Robert Spillane, Ulysees Gilbert III, Marcus Allen and rookie draft pick Buddy Johnson.

Bundage was one of five players the Steelers cut from their active roster, as part of an NFL-mandated cut-down from 85 players to 80 on Tuesday. Offensive lineman Aviante Collins, running back Pete Guerriero and wide receiver Tyler Simmons were all released.

Defensive back Antoine Brooks Jr. was waived/injured.
