Saunders was forced to miss the Steelers first four games of the season after he was suspended back in February for testing positive for a banned substance.
Head coach Mike Tomlin was asked about the release of Saunders on Tuesday and he would only say the decision to release the former undrafted tight end was a personnel based one.
