Ladarius Green joins list of strange Pittsburgh sports departures

The Steelers released tight end Ladarius Green Thursday, ending one of the more bizarre relationships with a player in franchise history.

The veteran — who signed a four-year, $20 million deal last year — played in just six games with the team in 2016 as he struggled with murky injury ordeals. The Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette reported that the Steelers did not fully investigate his concussion history with the San Diego Chargers, and that symptoms of those concussions caused him to miss time.

His status upon his release remains unknown. Coach Mike Tomlin declined to give an update on Green’s health before the NFL draft in April.
