TE Ladarius Green was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday. The Steelers used a failed physical designation. Pittsburgh signed Green to a four-year, $20 million contract last season and he earned about $6 million of the deal before being released. Parting ways with Green is expected to cost the Steelers $3.5 million in dead money. In his only season with the Steelers, Green missed 10 games and made two starts. He caught 18 passes for 304 yards and one touchdown while battling an ankle injury and a concussion.
