Steelers Cut West Virginia Native Ryan Switzer



The Steelers have released veteran wide receiver Ryan Switzer, according to a report by Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Switzer, 25, is coming off his least productive season as a professional, playing in nine games in 2019 before being shut down for the season with an injury and making just eight catches for 27 yards.

A North Carolina alum, Switzer came to Pittsburgh in a trade from the Oakland Raiders in 2018. In two seasons in Pittsburgh, he had 44 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown, while also serving a significant role as a return man.

Switzer is a Charleston, WV native and went to George Washington High School where he was a two-time Kennedy Award winner as the WV player of the year.
