Roster Spots: 8
Cut: Brandon Lindsey, Adrian Robinson, Eric Clanton, Mortty Ivy, Marshall McFadden, Brandon Hicks
Three out of the four starting linebacker positions are set, with the final competition being between Larry Foote and Stevenson Sylvester to replace James Farrior on the inside.
I am rooting for Sylvester to win that job, but I have a feeling that Foote will begin the year as the starter. Sean Spence should mainly be a backup in his rookie season.
If the Steelers had drafted an outside linebacker early in this draft, I thought there was a good chance that Jason Worilds would be cut, but as of now he should be the main backup on the outside.
Chris Carter was very impressive to me in his limited snaps as a rookie and I think he could surpass Worilds if he can get better against the run.
There is a shot that either Brandon Lindsey or Adrian Robinson could make the team as a reserve outside linebacker, but I just see the Steelers keeping the extra defensive linemen instead at this point.
