Steelers release WR Allen Robinson, saving $10 million dollars

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been trimming their roster since the 2023 NFL season ended. They cut ties with players who were expected to be released, but not necessarily at the time of their dismissal from the team. To date, here are some names of players who were released from the team who had a role within the organization last year:

  • QB Mitch Trubisky
  • C Mason Cole
  • OT Chuks Okorafor
  • P Pressley Harvin III
  • S Keanu Neal

Throughout all of those transactions, the Steelers created just over $10 million dollars of salary cap space before the new league year begins next week. But that doesn’t mean they were done making moves. Earlier Friday it was reported the Steelers were releasing Patrick Peterson, a move which would save them roughly $6 million dollars towards their salary cap in 2024.

But the big move had yet to be made, and that was releasing wide receiver Allen Robinson. This move alone equated in creating $10 million in salary cap space.

With the release of Robinson, it moves their total cap space available to around $26 million dollars ahead of the tampering period beginning on Monday.

Robinson could return to the team on a lesser deal, but at this point the veteran wide receiver will likely test the free agent waters before agreeing to return to Pittsburgh on a lesser deal. With now $26 million dollars available to Omar Khan’s disposal, there is a good chance the Steelers will be both active and aggressive in free agency.

Stay tuned to SCN for the latest news and notes surrounding the team as they prepare for the new league year next week.
