Steelers Roster Cuts: 4 surprises and 4 disappointments on cut down day

The Pittsburgh Steelers have trimmed their roster from 90 to 53, and we cover the biggest surprises, and disappointments, after the dust settled.

In one day, the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with the rest of the NFL, had to make some extremely difficult decisions when it came to trimming their roster. Unlike the past when teams could trim their roster from 90 to 75, and then 75 to 53, this year it was one cut down from 90 to 53.

Disappointments

Senquez Golson — There is no way anyone would rank higher than Golson on the disappointed list. The former 2nd round draft pick played ZERO preseason snaps. Not one. He barely practiced since entering the NFL. As a big supporter of Golson after years one and two, it was time to cut their ties and take their losses with a player riddled with nothing but injuries.

Colin Holba — When you spend a 6th round draft pick on a long snapper, you better hope he makes the team. Unlike the Buccaneers who blew a second round pick on a kicker, the Steelers now look at a wasted pick in Holba after his release. Antonio Brown and Tom Brady are freaks of nature in round six, but this still stings.

Fitzgerald Toussaint — At a time when the running back depth chart was as thin as ever, an injury likely did him in. The lower body injury suffered by Toussaint opened up the door for Terrell Watson to run through it, literally. The man who some remember only for the fumble in Denver in the 2015 playoffs, is now unemployed.

Knile Davis— Davis was supposed to be the primary kick returner, something he excelled at in Kansas City, and a backup running back for the Steelers in 2017. Instead, he was cut due to being ineffective at both positions. Thankfully, the Steelers didn’t put a lot of money into Davis as a free agent acquisition.

Honorable Mention: Demarcus Ayers, David Johnson, Johnny Maxey, Trey Williams

imo the Steelers beefed up the quality of their RB backups I can see them taking the best RB in the second round next years draft. like Bell he wants to much money.
