Tribune-Review reporter Scott Brown, amongst others, reported Friday the Steelers released OT Trevis Turner, and signed CB Andre Freeman, an UDFA out of Slippery Rock.

The move to release Turner was likely in part to the recent signing of OT Kyle Jolley, who also looks to contend for the last tackle spot the team will carry with it on its full 53-man roster. Turner would still be practice-squad eligible.

The Steelers also recently signed rookie free agent K Danny Hrapmann, a 2010 All-America selection who tailed off a bit his senior year with Southern Mississippi. Bringing in competition for your kicker, especially when he's Shaun Suisham, is a good idea, but it takes quite a bit for a rookie free agent to beat out a veteran in the off-season.
