Steelers release David DeCastro

David DeCastro cut

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released offensive guard David DeCastro. This is the fourth offensive lineman the Steelers have lost since the 2020 season wrapped. Maurice Pouncey retired, Alejandro Villanueva and Matt Feiler signed with other teams. Now, DeCastro has been cut.

The NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Thursday.

The Steelers are in cap hell, which may explain the move. Pittsburgh will save almost $9 million by cutting the veteran offensive lineman.

DeCastro has been a Steeler since the 2012 season. Drafted with the 24th overall selection, the guard has earned two first-team All-Pro selections and six Pro Bowl selections. 2021 would have been DeCastro’s last year on his current Steelers contract.
