Steelers reduce roster to 53

National Football Post

Efficient. That definition describes the Pittsburgh Steelers - even in their roster cuts.

While other teams' final cuts are still yet to be made or yet to be announced at least, the Steelers have wasted no time in setting their 53-man roster hours ahead of tonight's deadline.

According to the team's website, the Steelers have let go of 21 players and put linebacker Sean Spence on injured reserve. Most notable among Pittsburgh's cuts are offensive lineman Trai Essex, who played in 76 games for Pittsburgh and punter Jeremy Kapinos, who was waived/injured.

Other cuts included defensive backs Damon Cromartie-Smith, Terrence Frederick and Josh Victorian, linebackers Brandon Hicks and Marshall McFadden, defensive linemen Corbin Bryant, Igbinosun Ikponmwosa and Jake Stoller, quarterback Jerrod Johnson, running back DuJuan Harris, wide receivers Tyler Beiler, Toney Clemons, David Gilreath, Marquis Maze and Derrick Williams, and offensive linemen Ryan Lee, John Malecki and Chris Scott.
