Steelers release safety Morgan Burnett after 1 season

PITTSBURGH (AP) Morgan Burnett's injury-marred stay with the Pittsburgh Steelers is over.

Pittsburgh released the veteran safety Monday, just one season into a three-year, $14.5 million contract Burnett signed last March.

The Steelers had hoped to pair Burnett with Sean Davis in the back end of the secondary. But Burnett injured a hamstring during training camp, returned in time to start the first two games before missing a month because of a groin injury. He ended up losing the starting job to rookie Terrell Edmunds.
