Steelers Release Versatile OL John Leglue



The Pittsburgh Steelers have offensive lineman John Leglue, as part of the team’s final cuts to get to a 53-man roster.

An undrafted free agent out of Tulane in 2019, Leglue latched onto a few practice squads around the league before finding his way to Pittsburgh in December of 2020.

While he was thought of as a tackle coming into training camp, Leglue became an emergency center, and never stopped working there. Leglue also began to work at both guard spots as the preseason winded down. That now means Leglue has experience at all five positions, thus making him valuable and a likely practice squad addition.

Leglue 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 offensive lineman Rashaad Coward, running back Trey Edmundsguard B.J. Finneycornerback Mark Gilbert, tackle Chaz Green, outside linebacker Cassius Marshcornerback Arthur Maulettight end Kevin Raderoutside linebacker Quincy Rocherunning back Jaylen Samuelssafety Donovan Stiner, and wide receiver Cody White.

Additionally, quarterback Josh Dobbs was placed on injured reserve.
