Former Penn State Football Star Lamont Wade Released By Pittsburgh Steelers

Former Penn State football defensive back Lamont Wade has been released by the Steelers, the team announced Saturday.

Wade was one of nine players released by the team on Saturday as the Steelers start to cut down their roster to 53 players ahead of the regular season.

The Steelers signed Wade as an undrafted free agent following the 2021 NFL Draft. He totaled seven tackles during this year’s preseason, five of them coming in the squad’s preseason finale on Friday.

Coming in as an undrafted free agent, it was always going to be an uphill battle for Wade to make the team. It’s currently unclear if the Steelers will attempt to keep Wade on their 12-man practice squad.

Wade spent four years in Happy Valley and appeared in 47 games during that span. After playing corner his freshman year, he switched to safety for his final three seasons and enjoyed a good amount of success.

He totaled 153 tackles, 6.5 for a loss, and 10 passes defended in his Penn State career. Additionally, he earned third-team All-Big Ten honors from the media and second-team honors from the Associated Press after his senior season.
