Steelers Waive OLB Jayrone Elliott

The Pittsburgh Steelers officially waived OLB Jayrone Elliott on Thursday after OLB Anthony Chickillo was removed from the commissioner’s exempt list. 

Elliott, 27, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out Toledo back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1,535,000 rookie contract with the Packers but did not receive a restricted offer from the team.

The Packers re-signed Elliott in 2017 before trading him to the Cowboys at the start of the regular season. Dallas elected to cut Elliott loose after a few weeks and later had a brief stint with the Saints.

Elliott played for the San Antonio Commanders and led the now-defunct AAF in sacks, which earned him a shot with the Dolphins in April. Miami waived Elliott in July and he signed on with the Steelers in a month later. 

Elliott has been on and off of the Steelers’ roster this season. 

In 2019, Elliot has appeared in four games for the Steelers and recorded four tackles and no sacks.
