Steelers cut TE Ladarius Green

Tight end Ladarius Green signed a four-year contract with the Steelers last March, but he won’t be seeing the final three years of it.

The Steelers announced on Thursday that they have released Green. The move, which will clear just over $2.6 million in cap room, came with the failed physical designation, which isn’t a great surprise given how Green’s one season with the team played out.

Green had ankle surgery last March and did not play his first game with the Steelers until Week 10 of the regular season. He then suffered a concussion in Week 15 and missed the rest of the year. That concussion came after concerns were raised during the offseason about how long it took Green to recover from a previous head injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

This leaves the Steelers with Jesse James, Xavier Grimble and David Johnson at tight end. James averaged 7.2 PPG (PPR) in the 10 games that Green missed last season. Those are low-end TE2 numbers in 12-team leagues.
