Steelers Morning Huddle

Steelers regular season is right around the corner so whether we are predicting roster moves, previewing the next game, or looking around for mentions of your Black & Gold we’ve got you covered. Here’s what’s being said about your Pittsburgh Steelers around the block for Sunday, Aug. 31st.

Steelers depth chart

With the cuts made to get the roster down to the league-mandated 53 players on Saturday afternoon, the Steelers updated their depth chart. On defense Stephon Tuitt is listed as the starting defensive end on the right side with Brett Keisel listed as his backup. Mike Munchak got his wish to have nine offensive linemen on the roster with rookie Wesley Johnson making the team and listed as third string left tackle and guard.

Steelers roster cuts analysis

ESPN’s Scott Brown analyzed the roster moves made by the Steelers on Saturday. He decided that the most significant cut was that of nine-year veteran Guy Whimper from the offensive line. He also noted just how thin the Steelers have left themselves at OLB with Arthur Moats and Terence Garvin serving as backups. Neither Chris Carter or rookie Howard Jones made the cut although Jones is likely to end up on the practice squad. Brown also reminds us that the 53 men listed on the roster now aren’t a lock to be the 53 men once the regular season starts citing that the team can pick up other players who were waived as early as noon Sunday.
