According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Pittsburgh Steelers have cut veteran offensive tackle Flozell Adams.

Adams was due to make $5 million this season and had been rumored to be cut for a while now. 

With Max Starks being cut yesterday, the Steelers have now released both tackles that started in Week 1 of last season.

It is believed that Adams would retire if he was not promised a starting job.

The Steelers are expected to bring back either Adams or Starks at a reduced salary.


Edit:  According to ESPN.com, Adams was unwilling to restructure his contract or take a pay cut.
