Steelers cut safeties Stuvaints, Logan

PITTSBURGH (March 6, 2006) -- Steelers safeties Mike Logan and Russell Stuvaints were released in moves designed to get the Super Bowl champions under the salary cap.

Pittsburgh cut backup quarterback Tommy Maddox and cornerback Willie Williams last week.

Logan recently needed knee surgery stemming from a Super Bowl injury and is likely to re-sign with the Steelers. By releasing him, the Steelers temporarily cleared about $1 million in salary cap room.

The Steelers are expected to re-sign Logan not only because they face losing safety Chris Hope as a free agent, but to avoid facing a grievance for releasing an injured player.

Stuvaints spent all or part of the last three seasons with the Steelers. He was placed on the injured reserve list Nov. 22 with a hamstring injury. He would have counted $230,000 against the cap next season.
