Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Steelers released Adams today, one day after releasing offensive tackle Max Starks.
The 36-year-old Adams was scheduled to make $5 million in 2011, so his release isn’t a big surprise. It also wouldn’t be a big surprise if the Steelers bring him back at a reduced salary.
Adams started all 16 games in 2010, his first season in Pittsburgh. Overall he has missed just 14 starts in 13 NFL seasons.
Offensive tackles Willie Colon and Jonathan Scott both signed with the Steelers yesterday.
