PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – As the Steelers continue to work on getting themselves under the salary cap with the restructuring of contracts for Troy Polamalu and Heath Miller, they’ve also announced several cuts from the roster as well.

The team has cut linebacker Larry Foote, tackle Levi Brown and cornerback Curtis Brown.

According to Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette, these moves bring about good news for the Steelers salary cap issues.

While the Levi Brown move was more of a formality after they gave up a conditional draft pick for him and he got hurt in warm-ups before his first game, some thought there still might have been a way to keep Foote and Curtis Brown.

The 33-year-old Foote, who missed most of the season after suffering a ruptured right biceps in the first half of the first game this past season, had one year left on his deal with $1.8 million counting against the cap.

With the Curtis Brown era now coming to an end, he now falls into the category of drafts busts for the Steelers as he was their third-round pick in the 2011 draft and never panned out.
