No surprise…the Steelers have released CB William Jackson, who was scheduled to count $12.187 million against the salary cap in 2023. Never played for the Steelers after being acquired in a late-season trade with Washington.

Without seeing much playing time on the field and dealing with previous injuries, it was expected the Steelers would move on from Jackson to pursue either a rookie corner or another option in free agency.
It’s expected the Steelers will have Penn State’s cornerback Joey Porter Jr. on their draft board for April 27th, where they currently carry the 17th overall pick.
