The Pittsburgh Steelers released Ladarius Green with a failed injury designation on Thursday, but the tight end is reportedly still intent on finding another team for the 2017 season.

Despite a lengthy injury history, including multiple concussions over his time with the Steelers and the then-San Diego Chargers, Green hopes to continue his career this upcoming campaign, a player who spoke with him told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Green was cut just one year into a four-year, $20-million contract. The fact that Pittsburgh was ready to move on so quickly isn’t a good sign in terms of the tight end’s health.

In 2016, Green was limited to just six games for the Steelers and caught 18 passes for 304 yards and one touchdown.
