Steelers waived/released TE David Paulson, TE Rob Blanchflower, TE Bryce Davis, CB Isaiah Green, CB Dayonne Nunley, CB Shaquille Richardson, S Ross Ventrone, RB Josh Harris, RB Stephen Houston, DE Ethan Hemer, DE Josh Mauro, DT Roy Philon, DE Nick Williams, LB Chris Carter, LB Howard Jones, LB Dan Molls, QB Brendon Kay, WR Derek Moye, WR Lanear Sampson, OT Graham Pocic, OG Will Simmons and OT Guy Whimper.

Paulson appeared in all 16 games each of the past two seasons, combining for 13 catches for 152 yards. Still only 25, he'll look for work as a reserve.

David Paulson caught three passes for 49 yards in the Steelers' Week 2 loss to the Bengals on Monday night.

Paulson will be remembered for losing a fumble at the Bengals' 16-yard line after a 34-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter. Filling in at tight end until Heath Miller (knee) returns, Paulson brings nothing to the table.

Steelers TEs coach James Daniel acknowledged David Paulson could be the team's Week 1 starting tight end.

"Yep, he could possibly be the starter," said Daniel. Paulson was a seventh-round pick out of Oregon in 2012, catching seven passes in his rookie year. He caught 31 balls as a college senior and ran a 4.93 forty at the Combine. With Heath Miller still rehabbing his triple-knee ligament tear, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders project as potential target monsters in this offense.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette expects David Paulson to handle tight end duties for however long Heath Miller (ACL, MCL surgery) is out.

If so, it's quite the downgrade. Paulson was a seventh-round pick out of Oregon in last year's draft, and he appeared in all 16 games as a rookie, catching just seven passes for 51 yards. Practice squad-types Jamie McCoy and Zack Pianalto are the only other tight ends on the roster. Miller will be up against the clock for Week 1.

Steelers signed seventh-round TE David Paulson to a four-year contract.

Paulson goes 6-foot-3, 247 and ran a 4.81 at the Combine. While obviously lacking an elite talent level, Paulson possesses soft hands and a knack for exploiting defensive soft spots. He'll try to make the Steelers as a No. 3 tight end.

Steelers selected Oregon TE David Paulson with the No. 240 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Paulson stands at 6'3/245 and is both an intelligent and hard-working player. He's not very strong, though, and figures to contribute as a pass-catching H-Back. He scored 10 touchdowns on 67 career receptions at Oregon. He's unlikely to beat out current Steelers' H-Back David Johnson for regular reps, but could make the team as a reserve tight end and special teamer.
