Per NFL transaction report, Steelers DL Dan McCullers listed under “CONTRACTS TERMINATED BY PLAYER” category.
Most that end up there are PS players who sign to active rosters. Seems like Big Dan is headed to another club.

It feels like defensive tackle Dan McCullers has been with the Pittsburgh Steelers forever. But the reality is McCullers has hung around the team for six seasons heading into 2020.
This season saw McCullers go from the active roster to the practice squad. And now it would appear McCullers is headed elsewhere completely. On the NFL transactions report, McCullers was listed as contract terminated but by the player.
This most likely means McCullers has an opportunity with another team. And good for him. McCullers never lived up to potential with the Steelers but by all accounts is a good guy and a good teammate. Pittsburgh gave him ample opportunities to make an impact on the defense but things never fell into place for him.
The move away from McCullers this season was made easier by the signing of Chris Wormley along with the continued progression of Isaiah Buggs.
