Steelers Will Wait Until Saturday Afternoon To Announce Final Roster Cuts


While many teams are wasting no time in announcing their final roster moves, the Pittsburgh Steelers will once again wait and announce theirs Saturday afternoon. Teams have until 6 p.m. eastern on Saturday to get their rosters down to 53 active players.

This shouldn't come as a surprise and while a few names will likely leak out between now and Saturday evening, there will still be a few unknowns until the official word is released.

General manager Kevin Colbert will likely be watching the cuts that take place around the league on Friday and early Saturday with the hopes of finding a player or two that he believes can help the team. Of course so will every other team in the league.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • MoSteel79

    the anticipation continues…

  • Michael Pearce

    How about some Oline help.

  • steeltown

    Bears released J’Marcus Webb

  • Mikey Greensheets

    I wouldnt call that help.

  • steeltown

    better than Whimper

  • cencalsteeler

    I watched Starks last night play against the Niners. Not good, he continuously got beat on almost every play. Felt sorry for Max, he truly looked frustrated out there.

  • John Hinton

    Is it wrong that I want Gay to get cut?! I’m still scratching my head over the decision to bring him back. In my best Dennis Green voice, “He is who we thought he was” as evidenced by his garbage play this preason and throughout camp.

  • T R

    I’m better then whimper lol

  • T R

    Maybe he disguising his skills till the real season

  • Kevin Gobleck

    A piece of paper is better than whimper, at least a paper could give them paper cuts too!

  • Jefferson_St_Joe

    I usually have high anticipation for final cut day. I worry that talented guys are going to be let go and won’t make it to the practice squad or that there won’t be room for guys who I think have lots of potential. This year does not have the same anticipation. This year the biggest question is who can they mine from other’s teams cut lists to fill out the back of the roster, especially on the OL.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Are Curtis Brown, Terry Hawthorne, Isaiah Green, or Josh Victorian better options? That’s the problem.

  • Guest

    just torture us long as possible huh we went 0-4 in preaseason.. dont torture us nomore

  • Guest

    just torture us more.. hell we was 0-4 in preseason. .Stop the pain.. Just tell us.. dang..

  • GunsDontKillWoodleyKills

    John Scott is better than Whimper. Did I go too far?

  • GunsDontKillWoodleyKills

    I would still take him over Whimper. Wish he would have retired a Steeler

  • sean mcmartin

    I would take an unproven Josh Victorian or go to waiver wire. After seeing Gay be the weak link in the SB against the packers should have been the final say. Gay wasn’t good enough for the cardinals to keep him after a year. How many more big plays will he have to surrender for the Steelers Ownership and coaching staff to take a chance with JV or attempt to upgrade elsewhere?

  • Mike.H

    May be an extra day so they “weigh” the last 2 guys on the bubble. See who’s less of bone head and hurt us “less”…

  • nikgreene

    Max Starks just got released. He has to be better than Whimper, right?

  • marvin87

    32 starts the last 2 seasons, can he play both tackle positions? if so might be a waiver claim by the steelers.

  • bgsteelfan

    He is.

  • Brandon Andrews

    0-4 preseason who will care if they start 3-1

  • Alexander Sebastian Heath

    That’s… the most incorrected statement ever. Willie Gay’s releasing from Cardinals had absolutely nothing to do with his performance, in matter of fact he outperformed his contract which led Cardinals to release Willie Gay so they didn’t had to pay the bonus. People forget he IS our nickel cornerback, very servicable more than any of other fans can say for their own teams.

    Sure he got beaten in pre-season, remember we went into pre-season trying to give younger players more PT and force our running game to get clicking on,we weren’t even trying to win, EVERY other teams we faced tried to win. Every Redskins fans all now are jumping up and down for their 4-0 record, good for them, absolutely meaningless.

  • cencalsteeler

    You might get your wish. The Chargers released him.

  • steeltown

    I think he has the best chance of anyone on the market right to come aboard
