The National Football League states all 32 teams must have trimmed their roster from 90, or in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ case 91, to 53 by Saturday at 4 p.m. ET. Some teams start the process early, whereas others wait until the final minute to release the names.

For the Steelers, their roster cuts didn’t have many surprises, but this long list of players released was highlighted by ________.

Check out the full list of players who are no longer with the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, but are now hoping for a shot with another franchise, or to get picked up by the Steelers for their practice squad, if they are still eligible.

While many fans will read this list and think, “The moves are finally over.”

Think again.

The Steelers can, and likely will, be scouring the waiver wire to see if there are any players who were cut by another team, and could be viewed as an upgrade at certain positions on the current roster. The two positions which could most benefit from an upgrade would be the depth at both safety and tight end.

In other words, stay tuned to BTSC for all the latest news and rumors considering the Steelers’ 53-man roster is not set in stone just yet.
