use this thread to talk about who makes the team.



The Steelers made their first wave of cuts on Saturday, releasing nine players as they prepare to get down to the 53-man roster.

Among those released are tight end Marcus Baugh, running back Tony Brooks-James, cornerback Shakur Brown, defensive tackle T.J. Carter, wide receiver Anthony Johnson, cornerback Lafayette Pitts, offensive guard Malcolm Pridgeon, wide receiver Mathew Sexton and safety Lamont Wade.

i had high hopes for shakur brown. i guess he couldnt overcome that 4.65 speed.
sexton was probably one fumble away from making the roster. he will have nightmares about that shit for years ... the 53 1797695198

Some really tough decisions coming up, especially at RB. Who do you think makes the team and who gets cut?

I personally think they will keep Snell. Not sure about Samuels, I think he may be a goner.

how many do they intend to keep ? 3 ? plus a fullback ? could be that both snell and samuels get the boot. maybe try to get snell on the practice squad.

I think Ballage is a tossup right now. Him or Snell. It could be either but I will guess they keep Snell.

Derek Watt is a lock.

I would probably go with your list if it is 3. If there is a 4th other than Watt, I think Snell over Samuels. I thought Ballage looked good at times in preseason. McFarland didn't look very good preseason but maybe they see speed potential.

Berry may have out punted Harvin in preseason. Not by much but I think Berry put on a good show. I thought Harvin was a lock before any games were played. I still think he probably makes it but Berry made it closer than expected.

Sexton was cut over the weekend but maybe goes to practice squad. If they keep 5 WRs I wonder if Cody White has a shot over McCloud. McCloud being a returner should have the advantage.

It will be interesting to see if they pick up any secondary help after the cuts this week. Also wondering on the status of Tuitt and Zach Banner did not play much this summer.

Harvin won out over Berry. I like this decision.

I remember reading a stat line, Harvin's hang time was longer, and he had a few more yards per punt. Don't know if that changed with the last game or not (I think the stat was after the 3rd game).

I will say, hats off to Berry, he did make it a competition and had a great preseason. Hopefully it will lead to him getting another opportunity elsewhere.

The writers at Post Gazette say Harvin has really been booming punts in practice even though not seen as much so far in the games. He should be good. He's younger and cheaper. It'll be interesting to see if they try any tricks with him. It was only the one play in college but fakes on special teams are always exciting when they work.

Steelers also cut long-snapper Kameron Canaday and will go with Christian Kuntz

I think Spillane makes it. What's the word on Allen? Is he going to miss any time?

Yeah, that's possible. Berry really did have a good camp. I still think keeping Harvin was the right move. Hang time is huge. And he's young, with growth potential, on a rookie deal.

It does bug me that on the NFL's official site, on the cut list, is this:

P Jordan Perry

C'mon NFL man, at least spell his name right.

From Steelers.com, here are the cuts/moves made:

The Steelers got down to the mandatory 53-man roster on Tuesday, as all teams had to reduce their rosters by 4 p.m.
Among the moves were releasing veteran punter Jordan Berry and long snapper Kameron Canaday, meaning rookie punter Pressley Harvin III and long snapper Christian Kuntz both earned roster spots.
In addition, the team released the following: receivers Rico Bussey and Cody White; running backs Trey Edmunds and Jaylen Samuels; offensive linemen Rashaad Coward, B.J. Finney, Chaz Green and John Leglue; tight end Kevin Rader; linebackers Cassius Marsh, Quincy Roche and Jamar Watson; defensive backs Mark Gilbert, Arthur Maulet and Donovan Stiner. The team also placed quarterback Joshua Dobbs on the Reserve/Injured List. Dobbs was hurt in the team's preseason finale.

hopefully they have a shopping list in mind before the season starts. linemen injuries seem to be an annual problem. RB not so much. i dont see BJ finney on the list.

Hate that for Dobbs. As hope he can find a team that will need his services there. Knew Harvin would get the job.

In the future I'd like to see them pick up an established vet RB to go behind Harris. If he has an injury it feels like we are right back to where we were before.

There weren't a lot of surprises this year. I think most spots that were up for grabs went the way most of us thought. The OL is a question mark but this year's roster to start the season on paper seems a little better than last year with the draft and some of their pick ups. The LB corps seems better and deeper. DL a bit uncertain with Tuitt's status. Secondary always is uncertain for us.

JC Hassenauer is the backup center. Apparently he beat Finney out of that job.
