The Pittsburgh Steelers released quarterback Mitch Trubisky and two other players in a series of cost-cutting moves to create salary cap space before free agency.
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a significant roster change by cutting quarterback Mitch Trubisky, offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor, and punter Pressley Harvin III. Trubisky, who was signed in March 2022 as a potential replacement for the retired Ben Roethlisberger, faced challenges during his tenure, leading to his release after two seasons. The moves are part of the team's strategy to free up salary cap space ahead of free agency, with Trubisky's departure alone creating about $11.5 million in cap space over two seasons. With Trubisky's exit, Kenny Pickett remains the only quarterback under contract for the Steelers next season.
