The team announced that they have released Zuerlein on Friday. They also waived tight end Blake Jarwin with an injury designation.
Zuerlein’s release saves the team just over $2.485 million in cap space as they work to get in compliance by next week. Zuerlein was 29-of-35 on field goals and 42-of-48 on extra points in the regular season. He made all three kicks he tried in a Wild Card round loss to the 49ers.
Jarwin had hip surgery recently and his departure clears just over $3.852 million in cap room.
