PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed Ryan Shazier on the reserve/retired list.

“Ryan’s placement on the Reserve/Retired List serves as a matter of protocol to ensure his continued inclusion within our organization moving forward in his professional career,” said Steelers General Manager/Vice President Kevin Colbert in a press release.

Shazier spent the last two seasons on the team’s reserve/physically unable to perform list after a spinal injury in December of 2017.

The Steelers roster is seeing some changes through retirement and free agency.

In addition to restructuring some contracts, some players have left the roster in different manners.

Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Haden, Chris Boswell, Steve Nelson, and Vance McDonald have reportedly undergone contract restructuring to help afford the team more cap room in the immediate future.

Ramon Foster has announced his retirement.

Tyler Matakevich has reportedly agreed to a contract with the Buffalo Bills.

Javon Hargrave agreed to a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

Also on Monday, the Steelers used the franchise tag on Bud Dupree.
