The Steelers first round of cuts were announced on August 31 with 13 players losing their jobs. The first to say goodbye to the Black and Gold were:

G Miles Dieffenbach, WR Kenzel Doe, WR C.J. Goodwin, RB Braylon Heard, DE Joe Kruger, DT Joe Okafor, OL Colin Rahrig, CB Jordan Sullen, OT Kevin Whimpy, S Ian Wild, TE Cam Clear, TE Ray Hamilton, and DE Niko Davis.

On Friday it was announced that punter Brad Wing was traded to the Giants in exchange for a late-round draft pick, which would make up for the pick the Steelers parted with to acquire kicker Josh Scobee from the Jaguars. That made Jordan Berry the Steelers punter for the 2015 season.

More cuts were announced ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline on Saturday that helped the Steelers reach the final 53. Here were the remaining cuts:

Running backs Jawon Chisholm and Josh Harris

Defensive linemen Matt Conrath, Ethan Hemer and Mike Thornton

Safeties Jordan Dangerfield, Alden Darby and Gerod Holliman,

Offensive linemen Reese Dismukes, B.J. Finney and Doug Legursky

Cornerbacks Kevin Fogg and B.W. Webb

Linebackers L.J. Fort, Shayon Green and Howard Jones

Wide receivers Shakim Phillips and Jarrod West

On the waived/ injured list are offensive linemen Kevin Palmer and Mitchell Van Dyk, both injured in the last preseason game of the season
