Former Ole Miss DB Senquez Golson cut from Steelers
Former Ole Miss defensive back Senquez Golson was cut from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday.
Golson “arrived in Pittsburgh with high hopes for future success when the Steelers took him in the second round of the 2015 draft,” a report from ProFootballTalk said.
“Those hopes went unrealized, however,” it said.
Golson spent his first two seasons on the injured reserve list before becoming one of the players cut by the Steelers on Saturday as they set their 53-man roster.

Golson played for Ole Miss from 2011 to 2013 and started a total of 20 games. He had 41 tackles in addition to a pair of interceptions and three pass breakups in his junior season before heading to the NFL.
When the Steelers took Golson in the second round of the 2015 draft, he was the highest draft selection from Ole Miss since 2010.
