Steelers Roster: Who Stays And Who Goes?

Dave Bryan at Steelers Depot takes a shot at the Steelers' 53-man roster. Five wide receivers (Mike Wallace, Hines Ward, Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery) make the team, with Arnaz Battle losing his spot now that the kickoff rule changes have made him more or less irrelevant. Also, he has the Steelers dropping offensive lineman Chris Scott, who would move to the practice squad.

Bryan has the Steelers keeping eight cornerbacks. That might make some sense for a couple games as the Steelers sort through their options, but that probably won't work in the long term. If they need to drop one, Crezdon Butler could be the one to go, although Bryan notes that 2011 fourth-round draft pick Cortez Allen could also be sent to the practice squad.

The Steelers would keep three quarterbacks (Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch), with Dennis Dixon departing. Also, the team's four running backs would be Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Mewelde Moore and Jonathan Dwyer.
