  • Ladarius Green: Hopes to continue career

    Green (concussion) wants to sign with a new team and play this season, ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler reports.

    Signed to a four-year, $20 million contract last offseason, Green was released by the Steelers on Thursday after failing a physical. He's apparently still dealing with symptoms from last season's concussion, which was at least the third significant head injury of his pro career. Green also dealt with ankle injuries each of the past three seasons, with the most recent one requiring major surgery last offseason and leading to an eight-game absence to start the 2016 campaign. He should draw interest from quite a few teams if he's eventually able to pass a physical, as his career marks of 14.6 yards per catch and 9.0 yards per target are top-notch for a tight end. Green only has eight touchdowns in 53 games through five seasons, but he's shown a penchant for scoring from distance that's rare at his position, with seven of those TDs spanning 19 or more yards. The Steelers, meanwhile, are left with Jesse James and Xavier Grimble at the top of the depth chart at tight end.

  • Steelers' Ladarius Green: Released by Steelers

    Green (concussion) was released by the Steelers on Thursday following a failed physical, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports.

    Green was brought in by the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent last offseason, but an ankle injury kept him on the PUP list for the team's first eight games before a concussion in Week 15 ended his 2016 campaign prematurely. He caught 18 passes for 304 yards and one touchdown on 34 targets during his six contests with Pittsburgh, but the veteran may struggle to catch on with another team as long as his health is in question. Jesse James will now be the No. 1 option at tight end for the Steelers' offense moving forward, with Xavier Grimble factoring into the mix as well.

  • Steelers' Ladarius Green: Participating in offseason program

    Green (concussion) is participating in Phase 2 of the Steelers' voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler reports.

    Green had a disappointing first season in Pittsburgh, missing the team's first eight games while recovering from ankle surgery, and then sitting out the final two regular-season contests and all three playoff games due to a concussion. He did make a number of big plays in his six appearances, catching 18 of 34 targets for 304 yards and a touchdown, with five of his receptions going for 28 or more yards. The Steelers didn't select any tight ends in the draft, which suggests they still have high hopes for Green as a major pass-catching threat down the seam. He should be available for the rest of the offseason program, but his poor injury track record dates back to his time in San Diego, where he played 16 games just once in four seasons. His mounting history of head injuries is of particular concern.
