Steelers Failed in Evaluating Ladarius Green's Medical History

After spending big on the tight end in 2016 National Football League free agency, it seems that Ladarius Green's stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers has come to an end after only one season. He started two games. He had just one good game, when he went off for six catches, 110 yards, and a touchdown against the Giants in Week 13. Green was schedule to make a base salary $5 million in 2017. He had surgery on that ankle and it ended up with Green being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list at the beginning of last season.

To be honest, though, Green was far from the ideal tight end, even for his "big wide receiver"-like role".

The former Chargers tight end signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers last year, and was expected to replace longtime Steelers tight end Heath Miller following his retirement. He exited the team's Week 15 game with a concussion. On paper, signing Green seemed like a home run. Green participated in OTAs.

Jesse James, Xavier Grimble and David Johnson are the three veterans at the position. Not to suggest either of the undrafted rookie free agents won't make the team, but it is hardly a slam dunk either will do what it takes to make the 53-man roster.

The Steelers also announced the signing of running back Terrell Watson.

Pittsburgh will open up its season on the road against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. ET. He had 28 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Week 17 action for the Eagles and was waived on May 4. However, it still comes as a surprise that the Steelers released Warren Thursday prior to the two long snappers even being able to compete alongside each other in training camp.
