The Steelers cut 21 players today, paring their roster down to 58. 5 more cuts must be made by tomorrow night. Topping the cuts were:
- Linebacker Mortty Ivy
- Defensive lineman Crobin Bryant
- Cornerbacks Donavan Warren and Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith
- Offesinve tackle Kyle Jolly and Keith Williams
- Wide Reciever Tyler Grisham
Also cute were: Baraka Atkins, Mario Harvey, Chris McCoy, Brett Greenwood, Macho Harris, Colin Miller, Armand Robinson, Wes Lyons, Jamie McCoy and Swayze Waters.
Candidates for the Steelers Practice Squad?
Mortty Ivy, Crobin Bryant, Dovanan Warren and this year’s 6th round pick Keith Williams are all likely practice squad candidates.
Tyler Grisham and Kyle Jolly spent time on the Steelers practice squad in previous seasons and could conceivably be back.
Who Do the Steelers Cut Next?
The Steelers still need to make five more moves. Word is that Steve McClendon is pushing Chris Hoke for a roster spot, and Justin Kaprios could very well likely spell the end of Daniel Sepulveda.
Likewise, Keenan Lewis might find himself being asked to return his playbook. Either way, the Steelers coaches will make some tough choices in the next 24 hours which, while unplesant, is a good problem to have.
