Steelers Release Rookie Wide Receiver Jackson

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers released rookie wide receiver Chris Jackson on Monday.

The Steelers replaced Jackson on their roster by re-signing first-year wideout Gerran Walker.

Walker originally signed with the team in January, but was released in July.
