On Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers officially announced the release of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, punter Pressley Harvin and offensive lineman Chuks Okorafor. This came shortly after reports emerged about Trubisky’s departure from the team.

Harvin, who was a seventh-round pick in 2021, had been the Steelers’ punter for the last three seasons. During his time in Pittsburgh, he averaged 39.4 net yards per kick and landed just under 35 percent of his punts inside the 20-yard-line.

Okorafor joined the Steelers as a third-round pick in 2018. He started 59 games and made 77 overall appearances during his time with the team, with 48 of those games coming from 2020-2022.

The departure of these players marks a significant change for the Steelers as they move forward with their roster. The team must now find replacements for their key contributors and make adjustments to their game plan moving forward.
