The Steelers have waived tailback Jawan Jamison, according to the NFL’s Monday transactions.

The 22-year-old Jamison signed with Pittsburgh on August 1. He played three offensive snaps in the Steelers’ preseason opener vs. the Giants on Saturday night and did not see any action on special teams, according the league’s game statistics.

Jamison (5-7, 203) was a seventh-round pick of Washington in 2013 and spent the last three weeks of the regular season on the club’s roster. He played collegiately at Rutgers.

Jamison’s departure leaves the Steelers with six tailbacks. Pittsburgh has one open roster spot.

    His dad JJ Jamison Sr. wants an explanation and will use his publication the Daily Bugle to make his feelings known.

    2 small backs was 1 too many for those two. Now the Steelers are down to one (Archer) and he’s big enough to make an impact on the NFL as his big gainer vs. the Giants demonstrated.

    OK haters, start your hating.

    I guess he wouldn’t let the HC call him “JJ”.

    Bell, Blount, and Archer. Leaves maybe 1 spot for the other 3 to fight over.
