They released punter Mike Barr for the third consecutive summer, going with veteran Chris Gardocki for his 16th NFL season. They released rookie tight end Charles Davis, a fifth-round draft choice, and must decide between undrafted rookie Jon Dekker and newly acquired Tim Euhus as their third tight end, if they keep three.

An intriguing move to watch for today is whether the Houston Texans release veteran tight end Mark Bruener. If they do, the Steelers could move quickly to sign him.

Halfback Cedrick Humes, a seventh-round pick, also is out as are offensive guard Tim Brown, nose tackle Scott Paxson, defensive end Lee Vickers, wide receivers Walter Young and Lee Mays, linebacker Ronald Stanley and fullback Brandon Joe.

Linebacker Richard Seigler has a right foot injury and could be waived/injured. Veteran offensive tackle Barrett Brooks' season ended in the game Thursday when he sustained a torn quad in his right knee. He goes on injured reserve."

A couple of things stuck out to me. Maybe bringing back Mark Bruener and Barrett Brooks tore a quad in his right knee
Thanks for the info, figg. I'm glad the Steelers decided to keep Gardocki - smart move. No surprise at all that they are hanging onto Omar Jacobs instead of Shane Boyd - Omar won the job with this performance on Thursday night. I'm also not surprised that Cedric Humes was released - he just didn't have the "umph". I think Lee Mays' release was obvious but will another wideout be released at some point?

I wouldn't be thrilled if the Steelers signed Mark Bruener. He will be 35 years old in a few weeks which is kind of up there for a TE.

35 IS OLD FOR A PASS CATCHING TE, but Bruener was a helluva blocker!

I wonder who we'll sign to the practice squad.

Quote:
PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers today released 20 players in order to get closer to the 53-player limit by today's 6 p.m. deadline.

The Steelers also announced that 12-year veteran offensive lineman Barrett Brooks was placed on the Reserve/Injured list after injuring his quadriceps in the team's preseason finale versus the Carolina Panthers. Brooks will miss the entire 2006 season.

The players released from the Steelers roster include, P Mike Barr, QB Shane Boyd, OL Tim Brown, TE Charles Davis, TE Jon Dekker, DE Orien Harris, RB Cedric Humes, QB Omar Jacobs, FB Branden Joe, FB John Kuhn, S Mike Lorello, CB Anthony Madison, WR Lee Mays, DE Shaun Nua, DT Scott Paxson, LB Richard Seigler, LB Ron Stanley, OT Brandon Torrey, DE Lee Vickers and WR Walter Young.

The Steelers must release two more players by 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 2, to reach the NFL's 53-man roster limit.

After watching the first three games, I can't say that I'm surprised by the move. One of them will be signed to the practice squad. The question is which one.

True...none of them played well enough for another team to snag them...unless we snag another QB someone else cuts....

Hopefully we wont ever see either guy play any way.

Looks like we had some bad picks in the late rounds. They let go of that Defensive end as well as Humes. So, what are they waiting for with Staley? My feeling is they are still trying to deal him somewhere even at this late hour, or there may be some hanky panky going on with the waiver wire.
