Default Who will be the new faces for the 2009 Steelers

As the Coach says, every year is a "new" team

This is my guess as to which faces will be "new" on the 09 team and who is gone, or will be gone, this fall.

11 are already gone (counting Foote)

Could be as many as a fifteen new faces plus some new Practice Squad players.


Position and who is IN and who is OUT
Offense
RB Mendenhall ........... Gary Russell
T Hills............ Marvel Smith
G Urbik........... Kendall Simmons
WR Wallace........... Washington
CB K. Lewis ........... Bryant McFadden
QB Batch ........... Byron Leftwich
LS Estermeyer/Warren........... Jared Retofsky
P Sepulveda ........... Mitch Berger

Defense
FS Mundy/Lewis/Richardson........... Anthony Smith
ILB Fox (ST to back up ILB)........... Larry Foote
DE Hood ........... Orpheus Roye


Some interesting Competition for Camp
CB Ratliff/Burnett ........... Bryant
WR McDonald ........... Nance, Baker
G Urbik ........... Stapleton
C AQ Shipley........... Stapleton (If Stapleton gets beat out by Urbik, Center is his next position)
FB Powdrell ........... C. Davis
LB Woods ........... Frazier
QB Reilly ........... Batch (interesting thought)
TE Spaeth ........... Sherrod/DJ Johnson
DE Ra'Shon Harris ........... Kirschke

Here is the SuperBowl 43 Roster (including IR) to see what has changed in a few short months

William Gay CB
Bryant McFadden CB........... Gone
Ike Taylor CB
Deshea Townsend CB
Fernando Bryant* CB
Anthony Madison CB
Tyrone Carter SS
Troy Polamalu SS
Ryan Clark FS
Anthony Smith* FS ........... Gone

Chris Hoke NT
Travis Kirschke DE
Nick Eason DE

Orpheus Roye * DE ........... Gone
Aaron Smith DE
Kyle Clement DT ........... Gone
Scott Paxson* DT

James Farrior ILB
Larry Foote ILB ........... Almost Gone
Lawrence Timmons ILB
Keyaron Fox ILB
James Harrison OLB
LaMarr Woodley OLB
Bruce Davis* OLB
Patrick Bailey OLB
Andre Frazier OLB

Ben Roethlisberger QB
Charlie Batch QB
Dennis Dixon QB
Byron Leftwich QB ........... Gone

Rashard Mendenhall RB
Mewelde Moore RB
Willie Parker RB
Gary Russel RB ........... Gone
Carey Davis FB

Justin Hartwig C
Chris Kemoeatu G
Kendall Simmons G ........... Gone
Darnell Stapleton G/C

Mitch Berger isn't going anywhere, he's a Steeler-starter for life.

Tony Hills might get the ax........but I could be wrong, it depends on how much he "bulked up".....or if he did.

I like the two inside undrafted free agents. One will make active roster as special teamer and the other might make the practice squad.
