Kaboly: Steelers cut 9 including So’oto; more to come

August 26, 2014 by Mark Kaboly | Comments Off


The Steelers cut nine players on Tuesday morning and will have to make six more roster moves by the 4 p.m deadline.

A couple of the first cuts were a little bit surprising.

The Steelers released linebacker Vic So’oto, safety Jordan Dangerfield and tight end Eric Waters despite all three have solid training camps.

So’oto may have had the best camp of all the players who were initially cut. He forced a pair of fumbles including one against the Bills that led to the game-winning points.

Dangerfield and Waters both performed well, and with the lack of young depth at the position, all three (including So’oto) could find themselves back on the Steelers’ 10-man practice squad by next week.

Also released were running backs Miguel Maysonet and Jordan Hall (Jeannette); wide receivers C.J. Goodwin (California, Pa.) and Kashif Moore; and cornerbacks Devin Smith and Lewis Toler.

The Steelers must reduce its roster to 53 players by Saturday at 4 p.m.
