Steelers Waive NT Anthony Rashad White From Injured Reserve List

A week ago we reported that former Michigan State nose tackle Anthony Rashad White reverted back to the Pittsburgh Steelers injured reserve list following him clearing waivers after being waived injured on May 6. On Tuesday, White was waived from the injured reserve list which means that he is fully recovered from whatever injury he may have had.

White was signed as an undrafted free agent immediately following the 2013 NFL draft, but according to Bob Labriola of, the 335 pound nose tackle showed up to the Steelers rookie camp extremely out of shape.

We have yet to find out exactly why White needed to be waived injured and likely never will unless he is asked about it in the future. All that matters at this point is that he is off the roster now and that the team is not on the hook for his salary. White had a very small dead money charge, well under $4,000, associated with his release due the signing bonus that was given him.
