Fort was released by the Steelers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fort was active for the Steelers' season-opening win over the Browns, recording two tackles while logging 19 of his 20 snaps on special teams. The organization evidently view him as a key part of that unit, so he was let go to create room on the 53-man roster for fellow linebacker Steven Johnson.

Fort re-signed with the Steelers Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After being released four days ago, the linebacker will rejoin the team after Steven Johnson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. Fort should add some much needed linebacker depth to the Steelers, but figures to play primarily on special teams as he has done all season.

Fort was released by Pittsburgh on Saturday, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fort was released in order to clear a roster spot for Ladarius Green. Little more than a depth linebacker, his absence shouldn't impact the defense much at all.
