The Pittsburgh Steelers are staying busy.
Foote is the most notable name here, a 12-year veteran who's played in Pittsburgh for all but one season of his career. The writing was on the wall after Foote was placed on injured reserve in early September with a torn biceps. Pittsburgh's leading tackler in 2012, Foote will turn 34 in June. The move saves Pittsburgh just north of $1 million.
The release of Levi Brown was not a surprise. He never played a game for the team after tearing his triceps during pregame warmups after a trade from the Arizona Cardinals. The move saves $6.25 million in cap space.
Curtis Brown was a third-round pick in the 2011 draft. He never started a game and ended last season on IR with a torn ACL.
