Guess At First 5 Steelers Players Cut Getting Down To 75
The Steelers have until 4:00 PM Tuesday to get their preseason roster trimmed down to 75 players from 80. I am listing 5 players I believe could be the first 5 out the door in Tuesday roster cuts. Two players they could move to injured reserve are DT Steve McClendon (knee) and T Chris Scott, but I think they want to place Scott on reserve PUP to start the season and McClendon gets another week to get healthy before they make a decision. Below are my 5 and reasons.
LB Brandon Renkart - Renkart was signed as a body when linebacker Andre Frazier was placed on injured reserve. He has no chance at making the 53 man roster and not a talent for the practice squad. Merely was a camp body.
WR Brandon London - Tallest receiver on the team, but has gotten almost zero work on offense in preseason. Merely a practice receiver and not even needed for the practice squad.
T Kyle Jolly - Jolly was signed as an undrafted free agent and has will likely be beat out by Dorian Brooks as a practice squad offensive lineman.
DB David Pittman - Pittman was a free agent signed defensive back that has bounced around a lot. Has not looked overly great late in preseason games in limited action. If not gone now, will be next week. Zero chance to make the roster.
S Justin Thornton - Another undrafted free agent that has not looked great during limited times in preseason games. Camp safety is all he was.
