    I think this is the year we make a few moves....I think an OL via trade or cut list...Thinking Bush may/ should be gone...Maybe an outside OLB... Rudolph is is either traded or emergency QB...

    Everyones thoughts/ predictions...

    That's like 5, maybe 6 predictions. So, you're a few short of 53

    Gonna be interesting to see who they keep at receiver for the 4/5 spot. With Austin still out with his foot injury. Guys like Gunner, Boykin, Sims, and Tyler Vaughn’s all deserve consideration to make the 53 man roster. I think Gunner will start the year as the number 4 receiver there is a good chance with the practice squad rosters expanding to 16 this year that all 3 guys Sims, Boykin and Vaughns are all pretty safe bets to make the practice squad.

    Does Derek Watt start the season on the IR, so he will not count against the 53?

    He would have to be on opening day 53 to be put on IR and return this year.

    If they put him on IR before that he is done for the year

    I doubt they will keep three WRs on the practice squad, more likely it will be two of them, I think Boykin makes the 53.

    Vaughn just may get signed somewhere else, he has played that well. We have had others that has happened to and nothing ever came of it..I like his game but you can't keep them all.

    Yep, you are right; they need to be on the 53 man roster for 1 day to be eligible to return.

    From 2021
    After trimming the roster down to 53 players by 4 PM on Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers are making more moves as they prepare their roster for Week 1 of the NFL regular season. After spending the mandatory 24 hours on the roster in order to be eligible to return, the Steelers have placed Stephon Tuitt, Zach Banner, and Anthony McFarland Jr. on the Reserved/Injured List.

    When do they have to announce the roster numbers?

    Curious to see who gets to wear #65?

    This is very close I think.

    Corner group looks very thin, an injury or two and they’ll be in big trouble

    Yep. Like it. Agree completely. From the cuts, I'd be looking to replace KG, possibly Pierre and anyone who ends up on IR (maybe Watt, Kazee, Adams, etc.). If the OL and LBs hold, it's a good team.

    WR room has a lot of hard choices.
    I don't think McFarland makes it at Running back, he may end up on Practice Squad.

    Still think the Steelers will scour for any OL and OLB that they think is worth anything to bring to the table.

    Looking at our O-Line I see a lot us getting frustrated and upset during the season. Not a lot to hang your hat on, with our O-Line.

    If Tomlin is gonna put a price tag on this defense with him saying he expects them to be dominant. Then this team better find a way to win some low scoring games which I feel puts even more pressure on Trubisky to win early and often and not screw it up. Like I mentioned before there should be no long term loyalty here with Trubisky. You start the year with him which is fine by me but if he isn’t getting it done by 3 or 4 games into the season and you are off to a 1-3 start let’s say then you gotta go to Pickett. They don’t have the time or luxury to hope that Trubisky will get better and figure it out not when you have a guy like Pickett who you drafted 20th overall and who is probably more talented then Trubisky. The AFC is loaded this year and starting something like 1-3 or 1-4 this year is probably not gonna be good enough to overcome to make the playoffs like they did a year ago.

    For those that wanted to dump P H III he has been playing very well going back to the KC game

    An excellent 7th round pick

    That threw me at first as well. I almost posted a response that I'd be very surprised if he didn't make the team, though Sims was also impressive in a similar role.

    Sometimes you have to look at the whole picture. Kid lost 2 close family members and got covid in a short period of time. His consistency last year was an issue...we always knew he had the leg. Hope he continues to boom it.
