Former Steelers OL Trevis Turner Suspended Four Games

A league source confirmed with Scout.com writer Aaron Wilson former Steelers OL Trevis Turner has been suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for an undisclosed reason.

Turner was an undrafted free agent in 2011, and was on the team's practice squad last season. He was released in May, possibly in wake of an upcoming suspension.

Turner didn't figure to be a favorite to make the 53-man roster, but he did have practice squad eligibility, and could have been someone the team monitored the progress of through this season.

Not that it'd be impossible for his career to resume. Whomever takes him, though, gets the benefit of taking on a guy who hasn't played in the NFL but will miss one quarter of the season. While he may not have figured into the Steelers' future plans as of this off-season, you can't coach size, and Turner has plenty of that.

Turner was a Division II All America selection out of Abeline Christian in 2011.

Steelers Transactions Include Release of OT Trevis Turner, Signing of CB Andre Freeman, K Danny Hrapmann

Tribune-Review reporter Scott Brown, amongst others, reported Friday the Steelers released OT Trevis Turner, and signed CB Andre Freeman, an UDFA out of Slippery Rock.

The move to release Turner was likely in part to the recent signing of OT Kyle Jolley, who also looks to contend for the last tackle spot the team will carry with it on its full 53-man roster. Turner would still be practice-squad eligible.

The Steelers also recently signed rookie free agent K Danny Hrapmann, a 2010 All-America selection who tailed off a bit his senior year with Southern Mississippi. Bringing in competition for your kicker, especially when he's Shaun Suisham, is a good idea, but it takes quite a bit for a rookie free agent to beat out a veteran in the off-season.
