Pittsburgh Steelers roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Pittsburgh Steelers sort out their roster decisions.

Ross Tucker Football Podcast: Joe Dolan’s 2021 Running Back Tiers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are riding into presumably the final year of having quarterback Ben Roethlisberger under center and will have a variety of offensive skill weapons to turn to come Week 1.

Pittsburgh has a variety of receivers vying for the top spot but Juju Smith-Schuster will come out of training camp as the top guy with Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool remaining as good deep-ball targets. Rookie Najee Harris and Anthony Johnson will be the one-two punch at running back while Benny Snell, Jaylen Samuels, and Kalen Ballage will still battle it out for the third slot. And Eric Ebron is the starter at tight end but is feeling the heat from rookie Pat Freiermuth.

*Player who was waived with an injury designation and has reverted back to the team’s injured reserve list
