Cardinals To Release T Max Starks, Lions Waive P Drew Butler

It’s not a good day for former Pittsburgh Steelers players as several are showing up on the early lists of cut-downs throughout the league.

The Arizona Cardinals will reportedly release tackle Max Starks Monday just three weeks after signing him. Starks played a total of 86 snaps with the Cardinals over the course of three preseason games with most of his snaps coming at right tackle.

In addition to Starks, the Detroit Lions have reportedly waived former Steelers punter Drew Butler, who they signed at the end of July.

Butler punted six times for the Lions during the preseason for a 48.2 yard average and a 34.0 net average.

Earlier in the day it was announced that the Buffalo Bills had parted ways with former Steelers backup quarterback Dennis Dixon.

Teams must trim their rosters down to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon. The Steelers are expected to announce their cuts sometime on Monday.
