Find out what the sudden releases of Ladarius Green and Greg Warren mean to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

When the Steelers drafted long snapper Colin Holba in the sixth round on the draft, the writing was on the wall for long-time long snapper Greg Warren. He also missed two games in 2009, but otherwise played in all 181 regular-season and 15 playoff games.

Green produced 18 catches for 304 yards and a touchdown in those six games.

Green has a concerning injury history - including multiple concussions - dating back to his first four National Football League seasons with the San Diego Chargers, for whom he only played all 16 games one time. The six-foot-six Green was supposed to add a new element to the Steelers offense and help to alleviate the loss of Martavis Bryant to suspension.

So, let's look ahead at some way-to-early predictions for the Pittsburgh Steelers' 2018 offseason.

Certainly, this move is a surprise, as Green had participated in the most recent portion of OTAs with the team, but the reason why - designation failed physical - isn't a shock.

Green showed some flashes of tremendous athleticism in four seasons with the San Diego Chargers before he signed with the Steelers. He started two games. Undrafted free agents Scott Orndoff and Phazahn Odom are also on the team's 90-man roster. Ultimately, signing Green was a complete strikeout for the Steelers. At Watson's 2015 pro day he ran a 4.55 40 with a vertical jump of 35.5 inches and 22 bench reps.
