The Pittsburgh Steelers have ton of work to do on a short week before they face the Chicago bears next Sunday night at home, and the’ll need to bring their “A” game if they want to avoid an 0-3 start that would effectively end any hopes of making it back to the postseason before the first month of the NFL season is even over.
Today, the team made a pair of roster moves, cutting their backup kickier in order to add some depth to their depleted secondary:
Steelers add CB Isaiah Green and release K Shayne Graham. Graham makes $55K for 4 days of practice.

The Steelers were the 14th different team that has signed Graham over the course of his career. All four AFC North teams are now represented on that list. The Cincinnati Bengals originally drafted him, and he was cut and signed with the Ravens, then Browns at one point.
Graham made 31-of-38 field goals for the Texans last season, but was cut by the Browns when they dropped to 53 players last month.
