The Steelers initial roster cuts included some surprises, such as Jonathan Dwyer getting the boot. But Tomlin and Kevin Colbert didn’t stop after trimming the Steelers 2013 roster to 53.
First the Steelers signed guard Cody Wallace and cut John Malecki and today they took aim at shoring up what have been some truly atrocious special teams during the preseason.
During the preseason one of the bigger, if less sexy, position battles was between Drew Butler and Brian Moorman. The Steelers cut Moorman leaving Butler the presumed winner of the competition. Butler’s victory was short lived, however.
- The Steelers signed former New England Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko off of waivers.
They also claimed former Jacksonville Jaguars punter Antwon Blake off of waivers. Blake made the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie free agent last year, but looks to primarily be someone who will contribute on special teams. To make room for him, the Steelers waived Isaiah Green.
