Great. This year he nearly made the team but I think the Steelers want to have an experience backup given that Tuitt is a rookie. Mauro would have a real chance to be the backup DE next season.

I hope Howard Jones could also stay with the team. He has potential to be a good pass rusher but is just too raw.

Has he been officially signed yet ? Cause if so, I am totally relieved. Cause after the early morning Incident where 49er DE Ray McDonald was arrested for Domestic violence against his pregnant Fiancee...I really thought the 49ers MIGHT make a play on Mauro. I mean he showed pretty well in Camp, and he IS a Bay Area product from Stanford. So if he is already on our PS...then Good.

Always amazing how much concern there is these cuts are going to be picked up by someone else but almost always make it back - but no doubt there were 31 other teams waiting to pounce if Landry Jones would have been cut

Does Josh Mauro being inactive on Gameday give them an edge over Landry Jones being inactive?

In reality the bottom of the roster is no different than the practice squad. And for all the worry over Mauro, Jones, and Richardson, they all landed safely.

This was not exactly the Seahawks roster from which players were being culled for final cuts

The Steelers roster may be the equivalent of the Seahawks roster in a year or two.

If perception helps keep other teams away from out roster cuts, all the better.

With so little time before the season starts, most teams make moves on more established players so they know what they're getting. I'm still surprised they didn't lose more of them.

I'm not an idiot and thinking that any of these PS guys were going to be the difference in us wining a super bowl but I'm just glad keeping Landry Jones didn't cost us Mauro, Jones or anyone that MIGHT end up eloping is at some point because I truly do not believe he ever will. Go steelers!!! Enough with the make believe now let's make with the winning games that matter!!!
