The Pittsburgh Steelers have released veteran offensive tackle Chaz Green, the team announced on Tuesday as part of its cut-down to the 53-man roster limit.
Green was a third-round draft pick out of Florida by the Dallas Cowboys in 2015. After being released by the Cowboys in 2018, Green bounced around the league to four different teams, including a lengthy stay in 2020 with the Indianapolis Colts.
He has started eight games and played in 37 in his career. With the Colts in 2020, he played in 15 games and started one game, which was against the Steelers.
Green joined the Steelers in July after signing a one-year deal. He played in all four preseason games but failed to stand out in a huge way. Still, his experience may allow him to get a practice squad spot. However, he could not beat out Joe Haeg to make the roster proper.
Green 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 Edmunds, guard B.J. Finney, cornerback Mark Gilbert, 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.
