Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5)


Steelers release wide receiver Lance Moore

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with wide receiver Lance Moore, and linebacker Jason Worilds could soon follow Moore out the door.

The Steelers released the 31-year-old Moore on Monday following an inconsistent season in which he struggled to find consistent playing time. Moore, who signed a two-year free agent deal with Pittsburgh last spring, caught just 14 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns. He suffered a hamstring injury late in training camp and never quite meshed with Ben Roethlisberger. Moore was due $1.5 million in 2015.

Pittsburgh declined to place a franchise or transition tag on Worilds, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent on March 10 if a long-term deal is not reached. Worilds led the Steelers with 7 1/2 sacks in 2014.
