The Pittsburgh Steelers released yet another veteran player on Thursday.

The team announced that tight end Ladarius Green would not return, only hours after releasing long snapper Greg Warren. Just like Warren, Green also did not pass his physical.

Green started his career with the Steelers last season, signing as a free agent. However, due to multiple concussions and other injuries, Green only appeared in six games.

Green was originally brought in to be the replacement for retired tight end Heath Miller. Instead, Jesse James took the role over with the lack of production by Green.

In a Steelers uniform, Green recorded 18 receptions for 304 yards and one touchdown. Meanwhile, during his time with the San Diego Chargers he appeared in 48 games, recording 77 receptions for 1,087 yards and seven touchdowns.

In addition, the Steelers also announced the signing of Terrell Watson, a running back formerly on the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad.
