Although the Steelers have their roster to 53 players, it doesn’t mean they will be heading into Week 1 with this roster. The team can pick up any player who has been released from another team, once they clear waivers.

At the same time, the organization will be looking to add players to their 10-man practice squad. They will start to put the practice squad players together in the near future, and stay with BTSC for the latest information on additions to the Steelers’ organization.
