Reports have been trickling in over the last several days, but here is the first version of the Steelers 53-man roster.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2021 53-man roster has just been released! While there is still a chance the Steelers could make some adjustments at a few positions, questions about who would make the cut and who would be looking for employment elsewhere have now been answered. As we know, this roster could be very short-lived as the team prepares for its Week 1 matchup.

Players are listed by position group and are in no specific order. Players current numbers are listed but could be changed.
