Predicting Pittsburgh Steelers' 1st Wave of Roster Cuts
Chris Gazze

The journey will soon be over for 15 players in their quest to make the Pittsburgh Steelers. While the first round of cuts is still over three weeks away, the talent pool is already beginning to separate.

With only 53 spots available to the 90 players invited to training camp, over 40 percent will have to look for jobs elsewhere.  When you consider that about 40 roster spots are likely secure with the 22 starters and key backups, that leaves little room for error as the fringe players compete for a spot on the team.

Some players will take advantage of their opportunity, impress the coaches and make the cut, while others are just counting down the days until the first round of cuts takes place on August 26. By this date, the Steelers must reduce their roster to 75 active players.

Although it is early, the first wave of roster cuts is becoming clear. For some, a spectacular performance in the preseason will give them another chance with the coaches, but there is little reason for others to stick around.

So with over a week of training camp now complete, here is an early look at the moves the Steelers will make as they reduce their roster to 75 players.
