B.T. Potter: Dropped by Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh waived Potter on Saturday, Mike DeFabo of The Athletic reports.
Potter signed with the Steelers in April as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson. He appeared in two of the team's three preseason contests, converting two of his three field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries. However, his performance was not enough to unseat longtime starting kicker Chris Boswell. Potter will now look to either join up with Pittsburgh's practice squad or latch on elsewhere heading into the 2023 regular season.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' B.T. Potter: Misses lone field-goal attempt
Potter missed his lone field-goal attempt during Thursday's 24-0 preseason win over the Falcons.

Potter joined the Steelers as an undrafted free agent during the offseason to compete with Chris Boswell for the starting placekicking job. Potter got the first opportunity to kick during the preseason, while Boswell didn't see the field. It wouldn't be surprising to see Boswell have some chances to play later in the preseason, but Potter had an encouraging performance Friday.... See More ... See Less
