Pittsburgh Steelers release veteran center Mason Cole

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who has shown this offseason they are willing to make difficult decisions for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is for salary cap purposes, and others it might be just time to move on. Friday afternoon the Steelers announced they are releasing veteran center Mason Cole.

This per the Steelers official Twitter/X account:

The Steelers moving on from Cole will save them salary cap space, to the tune of $4.75 million dollars before displacement, just under $4 million after displacement.

What’s next for the Steelers? They still have to address what to do with Cam Heyward’s monster cap hit in 2024, as well as Allen Robinson expected to be around $10 million against the cap this season.

There is plenty of work to be done, and the Steelers don’t seem as if they are ready or willing to sit and just “run it back” with the same cast of characters from 2023. This is shaping up to be a crazy free agency period, and the run up to the 2024 NFL Draft will be something of note.
