On Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced the release of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, punter Pressley Harvin, and offensive lineman Chuks Okorafor. This news came shortly after reports surfaced about Trubisky’s departure from the team.
Harvin had been the Steelers’ punter for the last three seasons, averaging 39.4 net yards per kick and landing just under 35 percent of his punts inside the 20-yard-line. He was a seventh-round pick in 2021.
Okorafor joined the Steelers as a third-round pick in 2018 and started 59 games during his time with the team. He made 77 overall appearances, with 48 of those games coming from 2020-2022.
The departure of these players marks a significant change for the Steelers as they move forward with their roster.
