Signings and Cuts


SteelCityInsider is reporting that the Steelers announced the signing s today of 3rd-round pick Emmanuel Sanders, 5C pick Stevenson Sylvester, 6A pick Jonathan Dwyer, and 6B pick Antonio Brown.

The site is also reporting that seven players were cut.  They are: 

WR Jason Chery,

K Piotr Czech,

LB Derrick Doggett,

P Adam Graessle,

NT Cordarrow Thompson,

C Bradley Vierling, and

CB Trae Williams.

Nice to see we're locking up our picks.

Some concerns:  Will there be any competition in the kicking game?  I can't remember if there are any other K or P on the roster other than Reed and RoboPunter.  I don't see how this squares with Tomlin's core belief that competition brings out the best in athletes.  I'm suprised we cut Doggett without letting him have a chance to actually suit up and hit someone.  Perhaps all the LBs in the draft doomed him, but I thought he was specifically brought in to play on ST.  Finally, the Thompson cut is also a surprise, but I guess they like Paxson and McClendon.
