The Steel Mill

The first 10


It won’t be long after Saturday’s third preseason game against Atlanta that the Steelers will make their first cuts.

All NFL teams have to be down to 80 players by August 30. The number was originally 75, but the NFL recently announced that the increased the number to 80.

The big cut will come four days later when teams will have to release 27 players to get down to 53.

So who will be the first 10 to go?

Well, obviously not too many important players knowing that the NFL upped the training camp roster by 10 for this year.

Either way, here are the first 10 who will get the visit from the turk this weekend.

WR — Eric Greenwood
TE — Vaughn Charlton
OL — Colin Miller
PK – Swayze Waters
DL — Jarett Crittendon
LB — Chris McCoy
DB — Niles Brinkley
S — Brent Greenwood
RB — James Johnson
RB — Baron Batch placed on IR

The next cut will be a little more difficult, wouldn’t you say?
