No Changes Made On Latest Steelers Depth Chart

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their third depth chart of the preseason on Tuesday and it looks exactly like the one that was issued last week.

So why no changes this week? If I had to bet, I would guess that head coach Mike Tomlin really could care less right now about what the media needs as it relates to his roster. He probably just told Burt Lauten to use last week\’s being as the team arrived home from their loss to the Washington Redskins early Tuesday morning.

The Steelers will next take on the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday night at Heinz Field. The third game of the preseason is usually regarded as being the tune-up game for the regular season, so I suspect the starters will play into the second half.

The third game is also the last chance for players well outside of the bubble to convince the coaches that they should not be a part of the first round of cuts as the team will need to trim their roster down to 75 players a few days after the game.

Here is the latest release that went out on Tuesday.

  • Primanti05

    He should have left the O-Line depth chart blank….we don’t have an O-line, although its play was very offensive.

  • bgsteelfan

    Preseason depth carts aren’t worth the pixels they are lit up with.

  • Jefferson_St_Joe

    Looks like there will be a lot of tough decisions to try and find 75 guys to keep next week.

  • John Hinton

    Very clever, I see what you did there. Golf clap, Sir.

  • steeltown

    Ok.. who are your early candidates to be cut when they reduce to 75men?

    My List: D’Anthony Batiste, Mike Farrell, Joe Madsen, Nathan Overbay, Peter Tuitupou, David Gilreath, Kashif Moore, Tyler Shaw, Ryan Steed, Devin Smith, Ross Ventrone, Hebron Fangupo, Jeremy Wright, Kion Wilson and John Parker Wilson

    Only reason I didn’t put Whimper on the list is because we are pretty thin at that position right now.. could possibly put Golic on the list of cuts and take K.Wilson or Tuitupou off purely based on the fact that they don’t seem to have any confidence in Golic, atleast to this point not even to warrant a PS spot

  • NW86

    I’d say that’s pretty close. I don’t think they can cut both those tight ends (Overbay and Tuitupou) yet, just because they need some healthy backup bodies to play the 4th game. You don’t want your week 1 starters or even your primary backups to have to play too much in that last game. Instead I’d cut another LB like maybe Baxter or Rolle. They have 14 LB’s right now, that’s a lot.

  • Douglas Andrews

    You giving up on Fangupo already?

  • RW

    I would cut whimper and sign a cardboard cutout of a small child to a multi-year deal. At least the cardboard would take up space. I’d remove Fang from your list and give him until the 4th game.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    I think Gilreath will make it and Moore as well as shown to be decent and Ventrone although he wil not make the roster did have a strong showing last night and Wilson plays well…some tough cuts coming up!!!

    I would cut the entire 2nd String Offensive Line (If feasilbe) and beg Legursky, Starks and Colon to come back!! What a mistake letting them go! (<–Cant believe i said this ha)

  • steeltown

    With Al Woods playing some NT and Ta’amu seemingly showing improvement, yes.. Ive always liked the fact we signed Fangupo, but at this point we don’t need four NTs

  • steeltown

    I think Gilreath played his way off the roster already and he hasn’t caught a ball yet on Offense. I like Kashif Moore but with Sanders, LSH, Dunn, JD Woods and others who have actually contributed on Offense in addition to the return game, I think he’s the odd man out along with Gilreath

    Kion Wilson has been playing very well, but we have way too many LBs right now

  • steeltown

    Indeed, that’s why I might cut Golic instead or some other and keep Tuitupou on roster for the preseason body

  • Douglas Andrews

    Al’s versatility could save us a roster spot. Not sure if he has PS eligibility. Good to see Meada show some signs of improvement.
