Steelers Cut QB Landry Jones, Others

The Steelers have reached the 53-man roster limit by cutting a number of players, including quarterback Landry Jones.

Jones, 29, hasn’t played much during his six-year NFL career, as he’s attempted just 169 passes in relief of Roethlisberger. In that span, Jones has been a middling option, completing 63.9% of his passes for 1,310 yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions.

The Steelers also placed wide receiver Eli Rogers on the Reserve/PUP List, which will keep him off of the field for at least the first six weeks of the season.

Released:

  • QB Landry Jones
  • S Nat Berhe

Waived:

In addition to those moves, the Steelers designated the following players waived/injured:

    Really disappointed that they waved Bucky Hodges. Thought for sure he would make the team

      Hopefully he can get to the practice squad. Also potentially watch for either McDonald or Grimble to go on IR with the designation to return and then sign Hodges.

    Really surprised that Keion Adams was cut. Maybe Colbert believes he can sign him to the practice squad.

      He’ll get signed. They just wouldn’t trade for him or Dobbs knowing one of them were going to get released

    Adams and Brian Allen surprise me. Probably will b stashed on the Practice Squad to develop. Allen has the size, length and strength to b a solid sub package Corner.
