Steelers cut linebacker Kion Wilson, sign cornerback Toler
Kion Wilson, an inside linebacker who started two games early last season after Larry Foote was injured, was waived by the Steelers on Thursday, the day before the start of training camp.
Wilson, a former South Florida player, made 12 tackles in seven games last season. To replace Wilson, the Steelers signed former Rutgers cornerback Lew Toler, who attended the May rookie camp as an invited player.
Toler's final college season was cut short by a broken left arm in October.
The roster move was reported on the NFL's daily transactions list.
