PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — The Pittsburgh Steelers cut former Pitt linebacker Brandon Lindsey Thursday.

Lindsey was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Steelers after April’s NFL Draft. He attended rookie camp, but it appears a shoulder injury became a big enough problem that the Steelers were forced to cut him.

In turn, Pittsburgh added linebacker Ryan Baker to the roster. Baker is a rookie from LSU. He was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after April’s draft and later released.

Lindsey, an Aliquippa native, confirmed via Twitter Thursday that he has to have shoulder surgery.
