The Steelers have released veteran running back Trey Edmunds, the team announced on Saturday.
Edmunds, 25, is the brother of Steelers starting safety Terrell Edmunds. He joined the Steelers on Sept. 5, 2018, when he was signed to the team’s practice squad. He appeared in four games in 2018 and another 11 games in 2019, primarily as a special teams performer.
In 2019, he gained a role on offense, finishing the year with 22 carries for 92 years and six catches for 48 yards.
Edmunds was usurped for a roster spot by fourth-round rookie Anthony McFarland, Jr.
Edmunds is the 11th 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, outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper, punter Corliss Waitman, quarterback Paxton Lynch, running back Kerrith Whyte, Jr., tight end Kyle Markway and wide receiver Ryan Switzer.
