Post Steelers Roster Cuts: 5 surprises and 3 disappointments on
In one day Womens Jesse James Jersey , the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with the rest of the NFL, had to make some extremely difficult decisions when it came to trimming their roster. Unlike the past when teams could trim their roster from 90 to 75, and then 75 to 53, the team had to once again cut down from 90 to 53 in one fell swoop. In other words, a lot of players got some bad news Saturday.As for the Steelers, it is worth looking at some surprises, and some disappointments, when it comes to the team’s decisions which were made to get the roster number to 53.Just for clarification, a surprise would be someone who wasn’t necessarily expected to make the roster, or a surprise release Authentic Jon Bostic Jersey , while a disappointment would be someone who had a legitimate shot at making the roster, but for whatever reason didn’t. Here we go...SurprisesLandry JonesThere was no bigger surprise than Landry Jones being released. I am still stunned, to be honest, but Jones’ release saves salary cap space and puts a ton of pressure now on Joshua Dobbs and/or Mason Rudolph as the primary backups behind Ben Roethlisberger. So much for Roethlisberger’s “I trust Landry” comments.Marcus AllenThe rookie safety didn’t play much this preseason, but must have made enough plays, not counting taking out his teammate Malik Golden, to make the team. Was surprised he made the team and they didn’t just try to re-sign him to the practice squad.Obrazek
Brian AllenThe second year cornerback made the 53-man roster as a rookie, but with the logjam at cornerback and safety he was a surprise cut from the roster. Allen, who had his moments in the preseason, showed the size and speed coveted at the cornerback position. Nonetheless, for now it is the end of the road for Allen.Stevan RidleyRidley , when healthy, had a very good training camp. He runs hard, and has the experience the team needs if Le’Veon Bell chooses to not show up right away, or if Bell were to go down with an injury. He and James Conner would make one heck of a punishing 1-2 punch at the running back position if needed.Zach BannerThe giant offensive tackle was a cast off, and mid-camp addition, for the black-and-gold and he turned in a need at offensive tackle in to a spot on the 53-man roster. Kudos to him...he should send a thank you card to Jerald Hawkins.DisappointmentsKeion AdamsThe hype was serious surrounding Adams entering his second year. After landing on IR his rookie season, Adams was unable to beat out Ola Adeniyi for the fourth, and final, outside linebacker spot on the roster. I am surprised the team only kept four, and Adams is now out of a job. Look for him to go to the practice squad if not poached by another team.Nat BerheThe free agent acquisition was supposed to make the team for his special teams play, but apparently it wasn’t enough. Marcus Allen Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey , a rookie who was often injured throughout camp, made the roster ahead of him. Not a glowing endorsement for “the missile”.Editor’s Note: It should be noted the Steelers are expected to re-sign Berhe:Fitzgerald ToussaintMost of us, including myself, just assumed Fitzgerald Toussaint’s spot on the team was safe. However, in retrospect I should have seen the writing on the wall when the team signed Ryan Switzer. With Switzer on the roster, Toussaint would not be used on special teams and simply not necessary whenever Le’Veon Bell returns. A game that had previously been scheduled for Sunday night has been switched to an afternoon matchup because one of the teams involved in this contest has vastly unperformed this year. With the Pittsburgh Steelers riding a five game winning streak, they did their part to make this rematch worthy of national attention, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have done little to deserve the spotlight this season. With Jacksonville looking more like the team that missed postseason play for nine straight years before 2017 than the one that made it to the AFC Championship Game last season, the Steelers should be well position to give them their sixth straight loss of the year in Week 11. Players like Jalen Ramsey have had plenty to say about Pittsburgh since putting them out of the playoffs and many fans will be hoping the Steelers can quieten a Jacksonville team that got a little bit carried away with itself after their first good season in a decade.However, it would be a mistake to look at the Jaguars’ poor record and dismiss them as a guaranteed win on Sunday. Their defense still ranks third overall in the NFL this year, giving up an average of 319.1-yards a game and they are the No.1 team against the pass , allowing an average of just 200.6-yards through nine games. With the recent return of a running back who dominated Pittsburgh in their previous two meetings, after missing most of the season with a hamstring injury, facing Leonard Fournette once again will be no easy task.Week 11:Game: Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2-1) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6)Date: Sunday, November 18.Kickoff: 1.00 p.m. ET.Venue: TIAA Bank Field.Weather: Live weather update.Watch:TV Channel:CBS, broadcast locally on KDKA-TV-2, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo as commentators and Tracy Wolfson the sideline reporter.
