PITTSBURGH -— The Steelers released two players today, trimming their roster to 86 players four days prior to the start of team's training camp.
First-year wide receiver Gerran Walker and free agent rookie long snapper Jared Retkofsky were both released by the Steelers after signing with the team earlier this year. Retkofsky signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie from Texas Christian University. Walker signed with the team as a free agent in February. Walker, who played collegiately at Lehigh, was in training camp with the San Diego Chargers in 2006.
