The Steelers on Tuesday sent former 2021 third-round pick offensive lineman Kendrick Green to Houston in exchange for a 2025 6th-round pick. Drafted as a guard and moved to center, Green has never fulfilled what the Steelers drafted him to do. He was not physical enough to handle the blitzes of stronger opponents and was even moved to fullback in training camp to see if that was an option. He is the second Steelers lineman to be traded in the past few days, as OG Kevin Dotson was dealt to the Rams on Monday.

Pittsburgh had a 4:00pm EST deadline to submit their 53-man roster, and there were some surprises, including two punters making the team.

Draft 412 Analysis

There weren’t many surprises in the final roster, save for the Steelers choosing to keep two punters and retaining only three running backs. There is little doubt that the Steelers may move one of the punters via trade but the running back could become an issue if the injury bug raises its ugly head.

Draft 412 was surprised by the release of defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko, whom they’d signed this off-season from the Los Angeles Chargers. Fehoko had a strong camp but lost his spot to Armon Watts.

Draft 412 correctly predicted the Zach Gentry (TE) release, as the addition of rookie 3rd round draft pick Darnell Washington and the emergence of utility player Connor Heyward left Gentry as the odd man out.
