NFL Cuts 2011: Steelers Roster Shrinks By Six

The Steelers have begun to make roster moves in order to cut their roster down to 80 players. Tight end Vaughn Charlton, cornerback Kevin Dockery, and wideouts Eric Greenwood and Kenneth Moore have been cut. They also waived/injured tight end Miguel Chavis and put running back Baron Batch on injured reserve.

None of these moves come as huge shocks. Charlton, Dockery, Greenwood and Moore had no real chance of making the team. Greenwood is a tall receiver who caught passes in each of the Steelers' first two preseason games, but he didn't have a clear shot at a job. Greenwood, Charlton and Chavis were all undrafted free agents. Dockery was signed fairly recently due to the spate of injuries in the Steelers' secondary (as Steelers Depot points out), but despite that, he didn't have much of a chance of making the team. 

Expect the Steelers to cut their roster down further early this week. They'll have to trim at least four more players.
