The Steelers have released Chartiers Valley and Duquesne alumnus Christian Kuntz, according to his agent.
Kuntz, a linebacker and long snapper, joined the Steelers late in training camp to push starting long snapper Kameron Canaday and provide depth at outside linebacker, where the team had a run of injuries.
The 25-year-old played in the team’s final three preseason games, recording five tackles and a sack in the preseason finale against Carolina on Thursday night.
Kuntz has also spent time with the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars since graduating from Duquesne as a three-time All-American in 2017. He’s added long snapping to his repertoire since leaving college.
