The Pittsburgh Steelers offseason roster is going through a bit of an overhaul on Monday and it appears as though two more players have been released.
After if was announced earlier in the day punter Richie Leone, and defensive ends Nigel Crawford-Kinney and Bradon Prate were all released, another afternoon report indicates that long snapper Brandon Hartson and wide receiver Brelan Chancellor have also been jettisoned.
Steelers cut Crawford-Kinney, Prate, Leone, Hartson, Chancellor. Rahrig was tryout not UDFA. Add Stingily, Thornton, Hatchie (on 5-4-15).

The Steelers had claimed Hartson off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs several weeks ago. Chancellor, on the other hand, had been with the team since January after he was signed to a futures contract.
In addition to those players being released, it was also reported that Indiana offensive lineman Collin Rahrig never signed with the team as an undrafted free agent. Instead, Rahrig was a tryout player this past weekend at the Steelers rookie minicamp.
The Steelers offseason roster should now stand at 89 players.
