McFadden played in both the 2009 and 2011 Superbowls; however, he was forced to sit out most of this season due to injuries.  Despite being the special teams captain the past two years, Battle did not total any receiving yards this year. Along with McFadden and Battle, the Steelers released tight end Miguel Chavis and linebacker Erik Clanton.  They also recently signed defensive back and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle, wide receiver Juamorris Stewart, and linebacker Brandon Hicks.
