2011 Steelers 90 Man Roster With Early Training Camp Notes

Now that the CBA has been ratified and the official moves are out of the way, we have a good starting point for the 2011 Steelers 90 man roster to move forward with. Below is the roster and some early camp notes on each player. The Steelers will carry 90 players on their roster until the first cut-down date which is Aug. 30 and at that time they will need to cut to 75 players. The final roster cut is Sept. 3 and that is when they will need to trim down to their 53 man roster.
