PITTSBURGH, PA — Christmas weekend may be fast approaching, but the Steelers aren’t exactly in a festive mood as of late.
In the middle of a losing skid and dealing with all sorts of drama, the state of the building is far from jolly.
Their latest move proves just that:
Steelers Cut Anthony McFarland Jr.
McFarland was a standout back in training camp and the preseason, adding a dynamic to the backfield as a pass catcher while being the team’s primary returner.
But following a lower-body injury in Week 1, McFarland was placed on I.R. and struggled to get his job as the returner back following strong performances from Godwin Igwebuike.
So with multiple injuries on the defense, Pittsburgh had to make a couple roster moves to sure up space to likely sign two players to the active roster ahead of the Bengals game.
Unfortunately, it came at the cost of McFarland.
