NFL Cuts 2012: Pittsburgh Steelers Trim Roster Down

The Pittsburgh Steelers have made their first round of cuts to start whittling the roster on Monday.

According to Bob Labriola, the following players have been released:

  • LB Ryan Baker
  • DT Mike Blanc
  • DT Kade Weston
  • WR Jimmy Young
  • WR Juamorris Stewart
  • WR Paul Cox
  • CB Andre Freeman
  • CB Walter McFadden
  • K Dan Hrapmann
  • LB Mortty Ivy
  • T Kyle Jolly
  • LS Matt Katula
  • TE Justin Peelle
  • TE Jamie McCoy
  • S Myron Rolle

None of the names above are a big surprise, although Hrapmann was showing that he could compete for the job with a perfect preseason to this point.

With those players being released, the Steelers have the squad down to the mandated 75 players before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. Of course, Pittsburgh could release another player or two from the team if someone gets cut that Mike Tomlin and co. have interest in.
