Default Steelers Cut 3 Players...

Quote:
Steelers cut three players

The Steelers made a couple of roster moves today to get down the NFL minimum. They placed injured punter Daniel Sepulveda on injured reserve and cut three players -- kick returner Jeremy Bloom, defensive lineman Martavius Prince and quarterback Mike Potts.

Those moves trim the Steelers roster to 77. They need to reduce the roster to 76 by tomorrow at 4 p.m. The Steelers have an exemption because wide receiver Marvin Allen will be on the team's practice squad as part of the NFL international program.

No real surprises there. Wonder if they're going to go the IR route with Batch as well?

I'm not really surprised at these cuts. With Charlie's status up in the air at this point, Potts had to go. I think it is in the Steelers best interests to put Charlie on IR.

Who will be the next 3 to go? Only the shadow knows.

No surprises for those three cuts.

Ben Roethlisberger, Willie Parker and Troy Polumolu. Just think of the money we would save. Dan Rooney could tell his brothers, "hey this teams not worth nothing." Thereafter, they could spend like crazy on offensive linemen for 2009.

ha ha ... and with that rather pedestrian post I have finally made it to the head coach job. Now the Steelers will be sure to take my advice - how can they not? And to think ... all those people who said I would never make anything of myself.
