Foote, 33, has come up as a potential cap casualty in recent months as the Steelers work to get under the cap. Foote had two years remaining on his three-year, $5.5 million contract and would have made $1.5 million in each of the next two seasons.
- His cap figure was $1,833,333 and the Steelers will free up $1,166,666 by cutting him loose, according to OverTheCap.com.
Brown, 29, came over in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals last year. He still had three years remaining on his five-year, $30 million contract and would have made $6 million for the 2014 season.
- Brown had a $6.25 million cap figure and the team will save just as much by releasing him, according to OverTheCap.com.
He was placed on season-ending injured reserve last year with a triceps injury.
