Schefter: Steelers Releasing DE Aaron Smith

The blood letting of the Steelers roster continues, as Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the team has released d-lineman Aaron Smith.

Smith played just four games last season, and over the last three seasons has played in just 15 games total.

Video: Schefter on the Steelers’ Offseason Issues

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter addressed the two most talked about issues of the Steelers’ offseason so far: the future of wide receiver Mike Wallace and the relationship between quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

In his mailbag, Schefter writes that the Steelers are vulnerable to losing Wallace and it’s not by choice. Pittsburgh might be forced to put the first-round tender on Wallace instead of the franchise tag because it’s $ 11 million over the salary cap. He named the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers as teams who might sign Wallace to an offer sheet.

“That team can load up that contract with a big roster bonus that would count against the Steelers’ salary cap this season,” Schefter writes. “If Wallace signs an offer sheet that contains a $ 20 million roster bonus, the Steelers are left with two choices: they can match the offer sheet, keep Wallace and then have to cut $ 20 million worth of players; or they can decline to match, lose Wallace and get that cap space along with a first-round pick.”
