Pretty much as expected, no great surprises. Barlow raised my eyebrow just a bit, but he hadn't shown much before last night. Wonder if Tomlin let him play so that he could get some decent film to try and get another gig?

The next round of cuts will be much harder.

Steelers Release Ten Players; Trim Roster To 75

PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers released 10 players today, including three rookies and one seven-year veteran, as they trimmed their roster to 75 players.

Seventh-year running back Kevan Barlow was released after being signed by the team earlier this year. Among the rookies released were wide receiver Eric Fowler, defensive end Derrick Jones and long snapper Jared Retkofsky.

The Steelers also released second-year running back Larry Croom and five first-year players, including punter Mike Barr, kicker Connor Hughes, linebacker Richard Koonce, center Donovan Raiola and wide receiver Dan Sheldon.

NFL teams must trim their rosters to 53 players by 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1. Teams may sign up to eight players to their practice squad after noon on Sunday, Sept. 2.
Well the real notable here is, of course, Barlow, which leaved some glimmering hope that my boy, Russell, may make it after all.

Not much surprise, otherwise, with the backup special teamers and some UDFAs cut.

Not anything shocking there. Tomlin has some tough decisions to make this week.

Thanks for the read!

Hoping to see some key names stay...

To name a couple... Nick Eason and Carey Davis...

I think with Barlow out of the picture, that Davis and Russell may both make it.

I think that Barlow's playing time and early cut was to give him a chance to catch on. He might be able to help someone.

I'm wondering why Haynes did not play last night at all. It seems that Russell always gets the grunt work with the lineman who have absolutely no shot of making the team.

I like Russell much more than I like Davis.
