Pittsburgh Steelers roster cuts, updates following 2022 training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Pittsburgh Steelers sort out their roster decisions.

For the first time in nearly 20 years the Pittsburgh Steelers will have someone other than Ben Roethlisberger behind center. Mitchell Trubisky is the likely starter going into opening day, but the battle for QB2 has been turning toward 2022 first-round pick Kenny PIckett over veteran Mason Rudolph.

The bettors aren’t buying the Steelers as high without ‘Big Ben” at quarterback. DraftKings Sportsbook has set their over/under at 7.5 wins.

Beyond backup quarterback, the Steelers still have to make choices for backup running back and the final 1-2 spots at wide receiver.

Here, we’ll keep track of roster cuts for the Steelers and what it means for the betting and fantasy football landscape ahead of the 2022 NFL season.
