The Steelers continued their roster moves today by making the obvious decision to release Levi Brown, as well as veterans Larry Foote and Curtis Brown.
The decision to cut Brown was one that was all but guaranteed going into the offseason because of the huge price tag from his contract while with the Arizona Cardinals which saves over $6.25 million for Pittsburgh.
Foote would be 34 by the start of the upcoming season and was scheduled to make $1.5 million the contract he was under with Pittsburgh.
Curtis Brown was about to enter the final year of his rookie contract, and was scheduled to make a $645,000 base salary.
Ironically, all three ended the season on the injured reserve list. Neither Levi Brown nor Larry Foote completed a full game in uniform for the Steelers. This move continues a series of necessary decisions by Kevin Colbert to make space for the Steelers with the salary cap.
