The Steelers waived 15 players this morning to reach today's mandatory NFL cutdown, a number that includes rookie kicker Daniel Hrapmann.
Hrapmann's release means the Steelers have decided to stick with veteran kicker Shaun Suisham. Also waived was Rhodes scholar Myron Rolle, a safety. Linebacker Mortty Ivy, a Monroeville native and Gateway High School graduate, was waived injured.
The others waived today: linebacker Ryan Baker, defensive tackle Mike Blanc, wide receiver Paul Cox, cornerback Andre Freeman, long snapper Matt Katula, tight end Jamie McCoy, cornerback Walter McFadden, tight end Justin Peelle, offensive lineman Kyle Jolly, wide receiver Juamorris Stewart, defensive tackle Kade Weston and wide receiver Jimmy Young.
