Steelers trim roster to 75



The Steelers cut 15 players today to get down to the league-mandated 75-man limit. They’ll have to cut 22 more to get down to the 53-man roster limit for the regular season by 4 p.m. Saturday.

Those who were cut Tuesday include: running backs Jordan Hall, Tauren Poole and Miguel Maysonet; receivers C.J. Goodwin and Kashif Moore; cornerbacks Lewis Toler and Devin Smith; defensive linemen Hebron Fangupo and Brian Arnfelt; offensive linemen Chris Elkins and Emmanuel McCray; safety Jordan Dangerfield, linebacker Vic So’oto, tight end Eric Waters and long snapper Luke Ingram.

The only players cut today that spent time on the 53-man roster last season were Arnfelt and Fangupo.

Some of the players cut today and Saturday can be re-signed to the practice squad. Each team can have 10 practice squad players this year, up from eight last year.
