The Steelers made a slew of roster moves Monday, including placing offensive tackle Mike Adams on the PUP list to begin the season. Pittsburgh also placed cornerback Senquez Golson and kicker Garrett Hartley on injured reserve, which means both players will miss the 2015 season. Tight end Cameron Clear, defensive end Niko Davis and tight end Ray Hamilton were all waived/injured. The Steelers also released G Miles Dieffenbach, WR Kenzel Doe, WR C.J. Goodwin, RB Braylon Heard, DE Joe Kruger, DT Joe Okafor, OL Collin Rahrig, CB Jordan Sullen, OT Kevin Whimpey and S Ian Wild.

The Browns announced Monday that they have waived kicker Garrett Hartley, along with wide receiver Phil Bates, defensive lineman Christian Tupou and defensive back Varmah Sonie, per the Akron Beacon Journal. Hartley was signed by the Browns prior to Week 15 last season and was 3-for-3 in his only field goal attempts. Prior to that, he played for six seasons with the Saints.
Browns new placekicker Garrett Hartley received no opportunities upon his arrival in Week 15, but knocked down both chances Sunday at Carolina. Hartley booted a 43-yarder to tie the game early in the second quarter and added a 31-yarder late in the third. He also nailed his lone extra point attempt.
