Steelers release tight end Ladarius Green and long snapper Greg Warren

Rita Gibson | 19 May, 2017, 06:27

Pittsburgh begins its final session of OTAs next week in the leadup to minicamp next month.

Warren was part of three AFC champion teams and Super Bowl winners in 2005 and '08.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (drafted in 2004) is the only player with a longer continuous tenure with the Steelers than Warren. If Holba can carve a career with the same consistency as Warren, the Steelers can consider the sixth round pick a steal from the 2017 draft.

"I would first like to thank the Steelers organization, coaches and training staff for their help and advice over the last few weeks", said Warren.

The fact that Green was released came as a mild surprise, because the Steelers sounded like they were interesting in keeping him as recently as February.

The surprising news of the day was the release of Green.

Key reserve and 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala's status was unclear after he missed Game 2 with soreness in his left knee. Golden State is just the fifth National Basketball Association team to win its first 10 playoff games in a given postseason.

Last year, the Pittsburgh Steelers' flashy free agent signing was TE Ladarius Green. Even in such limited duty, Green had 18 catches for 304 yards and 1 touchdown and averaged an eye-popping 16.9 yards/catch.

In August of 2016, there were reports that Green was having exercise-induced headaches because of concussions he had in the past.

The reason was apparently for a failed physical.

The team is suddenly a bit thin at the position, with likely starter Jesse James backed up by a slew of question maarks - Xavier Grimble, David Johnson, Ryan Malleck, Phazahn Odom and Scott Orndoff among them.

Green failed a physical, resulting in the release. Parting ways with Green is expected to cost the Steelers $3.5 million in dead money. Cutting him saves just over $2.6 million.

The Steelers also announced the signing of running back Terrell Watson, who spent his undrafted rookie season on the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad in 2015. As they should, he was pretty productive past year.
