Default And the final cuts are.....

Okobi, Haynes among those cut by Steelers
Saturday, September 01, 2007
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Chukky Okobi, who came to training camp as the starting center, and running back Verron Haynes were among the players cut today by Coach Mike Tomlin as the Steelers reduced their roster to the final 53-player limit, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Also included in the cut were three rookie draft choices - defensive end Ryan McBean, a fourth-round pick; guard Cameron Stephenson (fifth) and wide receiver Dallas Baker (seventh).

Defensive end Shaun Nua, a seventh-round choice in 2005, and former special teams co-captain Chidi Iwuoma were also cut.

Haynes, a fifth-round draft choice in 2002, has been the team's third-down back for most of his career. But three of his previous five seasons have ended early because of knee injuries, including last season when he missed the final nine games.

Also cut were fullback John Kuhn, quarterback Bryan Randall, receivers Walter Young and Gerran Walker; tight ends Cody Boyd and Jon Dekker, tackles Jason Capizzi and Brandon Torrey; nose tackle Scott Paxson, linebackers Ron Stanley and Marquis Cooper; cornerbacks Anthony Madison and Jovon Johnson; and safeties Grant Mason and Mike Lorello.

Chukky I am a bit shocked.. but it will help out Salary Cap problem.

I am a little surprised by the Capizzi cut, but the others were kind of expected. Thanks for the info 83.

that sucks for haynes. definitely my favorite of the group. good guy and i hope he moves on to bigger, better things.

iwouma, and okolbi are mildly suprising. i thought these guys being gone would save space for haynes.

i think we have room to add a player or 2 off the waiver wire. other than the running backs i cant think of any suprises or bubble players that were kept.

Suprised but not shocked about Haynes...you could see the writing on the wall for Chukky, unfortunately, when they signed Mahan. Other than that, no major shockers, although I'm a little bummed about Capizzi; I think there's real upside there and I was hoping they'd keep him.

And now the fun begins!!!!!!

I think Whiz is going to scoop Okobi right up. I'm going to miss Verron - though he is injury prone, I liked the guy.
