PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers have officially released LaMarr Woodley.

It was rumored on Monday that the team would be cutting ties with the linebacker.

It was all but assumed that Woodley would be cut when the Steelers placed the Transition Tag on Jason Worilds.

Meantime, Woodley was released today with a June 1st designation, which means while he will become a free agent, the Steelers won’t be able to take his salary off the cap until after June 1.

Cutting Woodley will save the team around $8 million off this year’s cap.

Woodley signed a six-year, $61.5 million deal with the team back in 2011 after recording 39 sacks in his first four years with the team.

He was originally selected by the Steelers in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft and started 81 of 94 games played during the regular season.

Woodley recorded 55 tackles, five interceptions, nine forced fumbles, nine fumble recoveries and 57 sacks.
