Steelers release cornerback Justin Gilbert

Steelers release cornerback Justin Gilbert

While searching for depth in the secondary, the Steelers acquired Gilbert from Cleveland in August in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft.

The first is that he understands how hard you have to work to be successful in the National Football League and is disgusted that another couple of years of his career were wasted while dealing with players who don't take their careers seriously.

After spending this past season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, following a trade in the preseason from the Cleveland Browns, Gilbert was released Monday. In that time period, the corner made 35 tackles and one interception for the Browns.as well as featuring for their special team as a punt returner. The team doesn't have to give a reason for waiving a player, and Gilbert was clearly healthy as he returned kickoffs in the AFC Championship game just a few weeks ago.

Gilbert's time in Cleveland was plagued by missed meetings and missed assignments.

There are no salary cap ramifications for releasing Gilbert.

Gilbert appeared in 12 games for the Steelers in 2016.

This is the second consecutive season the Steelers parted with a cornerback for whom they traded a late-round draft pick to acquire. The Steelers tend to get things right when it comes to developing their roster but in this particular case, they got it wrong.
