Free agent K Shaun Suisham announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.
"Unfortunately, the injury I sustained in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game last preseason was catastrophic and has proven to be critical to continuing my career," Suisham said in a statement. Suisham was released with a failed physical tag by the Steelers on Friday. He finishes his career with an 84.1-percent conversion rate on 251 career field goal attempts.

Steelers released K Shaun Suisham.

The release came with a failed physical tag after Suisham reportedly suffered a setback in his rehab from a torn ACL. With Suisham gone, Chris Boswell is locked in as the kicker in Pittsburgh. RB Brandon Johnson was signed in a corresponding move.

Steelers K Shaun Suisham (knee) remains without a timetable for return.

Suisham tore his ACL in the Steelers' first preseason game last year and has yet to attempt a kick since. He and Chris Boswell are expected to compete for the kicking job, but Suisham is a non-factor as of this moment.

The Steelers plan to have a kicker competition this offseason.

Shaun Suisham missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL, and Chris Boswell was solid in relief, converting 29-of-32 field goal attempts. He did miss three extra points, however. Suisham has been the Steelers' kicker since 2010, but is due $2.4 million next season. He's a candidate for release.

Steelers placed K Shaun Suisham (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Suisham will undergo ACL surgery this week. The Steelers signed veteran Garrett Hartley to replace him. Suisham is signed through 2018.

Steelers K Shaun Suisham has a torn left ACL, and will undergo season-ending surgery.

The Steelers' kicker since midway through the 2010 season, Suisham will be sent to injured reserve. One of the league's steadiest kickers, Suisham turns 34 in December. Among the free agents available are Billy Cundiff, Shayne Graham and Jay Feely. The Steelers may first try to uncover a young prospect instead of signing an inconsistent veteran.

Steelers K Shaun Suisham has told people he believes he tore his ACL in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game.

Suisham, who suffered the injury while trying to make a tackle, is undergoing a Monday MRI to confirm. It's a big blow to the Steelers, who lose a kicker that has gone 87-of-95 (91.5 percent) over the last three seasons. It also opens up a big fantasy opportunity as Suisham was the No. 7 kicker last year as part of Pittsburgh's high-powered offense. The best free agents available include Shayne Graham, Garrett Hartley and Rian Lindell.

Steelers K Shaun Suisham suffered a potentially serious knee injury in Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game against the Vikings.

Suisham injured his left knee while trying to make a tackle on the second-half kickoff. He was fantasy's No. 7 kicker last year while connecting on 29-of-32 field-goal attempts. Shayne Graham and Garrett Hartley are among the free agent kickers available right now.
Mon, Aug 10, 2015 07:21:00 AM

Steelers signed K Shaun Suisham to a three-year contract extension.

Suisham, 32, is now signed with the Steelers for four more seasons. He's been Pittsburgh's kicker for the last four years, going 95-of-109 (87.1 percent) on field goals during that span. Suisham is coming off a 30-of-32 campaign, the best of his career.
Fri, Aug 1, 2014 10:32:00 AM

Steelers K Shaun Suisham (hamstring) is probable for Week 2.

Suisham was a full participant in practice Saturday and will handle all kicking duties on Monday night. With Suisham now healthy, Shayne Graham is a candidate for release.
Sat, Sep 14, 2013 03:30:00 PM

Steelers K Shaun Suisham sustained a hamstring injury Sunday and could miss a few weeks.

Suisham kicked just one extra point and didn't attempt a field goal in the loss to the Titans. FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo suggests Shayne Graham as a possible replacement. Given how poor the Steelers' offense looked Sunday, it's a fantasy kicking situation to avoid.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 09:51:00 PM

Steelers K Shaun Suisham recently underwent an appendectomy.

Swayze Waters handled kicking duties Thursday night, missing two kicks including a block. Suisham should be ready to go by Week 1, though he's never been consistently reliable on field goals.
Thu, Aug 18, 2011 11:46:00 PM

Steelers agreed to terms with K Shaun Suisham.

Suisham did stabilize Pittsburgh's kicking game following the release of Jeff Reed, but he's never been reliable in several stops with the Cowboys and Redskins. We'd steer clear of Suisham in fantasy drafts even if the Steelers boast an above-average offense.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 02:59:00 PM

The Steelers reportedly hope to re-sign free agent K Shaun Suisham.

A contending team should be aiming higher, but the Steelers are apparently high on Suisham after he connected on 14-of-15 field goals in seven games last season. The Post-Gazette shoots down the notion that David Akers would be an option.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 03:25:00 PM

Coach Mike Tomlin admitted that attempting a 52-yard field goal with Shaun Suisham in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLV was a mistake.

Suisham is now just 6-for-11 in his career in the playoffs, but Tomlin put his shaky kicker in a terrible spot with the long attempt. "That was a terrible decision by me in hindsight," Tomlin said. "That wasn't even close." Suisham, who made 14-of-15 field goals during the regular season after taking over for Jeff Reed, is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
