Steeler Roster Cuts Thread
 
Steelers Release Eight Players; Place One On Reserve/Injured List


PITTSBURGH — The Steelers released eight players today, including four rookies, as they trimmed their roster to 75.

Among the rookies released were safety Zach Baker, kicker Mark Brubaker, offensive tackle Nick Hagemann and offensive guard Grayling Love.

The Steelers also released second-year fullback Doug Easlick and three first-year players, including center/long snapper Kyle Andrews, linebacker Malcolm Postell and wide receiver Isaac West.

Additionally, the Steelers will be placing first-year offensive tackle Ulish Booker on the Reserved/Injured List with a knee injury.

NFL teams must trim their rosters to 53 players by 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2. Teams may sign up to eight players to their practice squad after noon on Sunday, Sept. 3. The Steelers will have a ninth practice squad player in 2006 as WR Marvin Allen joined the team as part of the NFL International Development Practice Squad program.

Agreed. I don't see anyone who would have major impact on the Steelers for their 2006 season.

Nothing earth-shattering. It will be interesting to see who makes the final cut on Saturday.

Yea, if you had asked any of us to cut 8 players from the Steelers roster we could've done it without any difficulty at all. Like you said, its the 53 man roster that'll be interesting

After that performance, they may keep a 3rd string QB given previous probs with QBs but both Jacobs and Boyd had crap performances. I think Boyd has to get cut.

I doubt we will keep 3 quarterbacks worst case Hines or Cedrick Wilson can play QB. They really can't be much worse than Boyd or Jacobs.

I think they might keep a 3rd back-up. Hell we went through 3 QB's last year which granted was a fluke but we lost Randell who would have been a great 3rd QB. I don't know both were horrid and make me pine for Maddox which is blasphemy.
