While the Steelers offseason roster seems mostly set at this point, these four players should be moved on from sooner rather than later.

The Steelers roster has seen a surplus of change this offseason. From having to move on from their starting quarterback to revamping the receiver room, there are a lot of new faces on this squad. Some of the older ones now are now fighting for roster spots though. In particular, these four players should be cut by the Steelers before they even take a snap.

Steelers Edmunds

No, this doesn’t have anything to do with Terrell Edmunds as his roster spot is locked in at this point as the starting strong safety. His brother, on the other hand, is a limited running back that lacks a defining trait. As an offensive weapon, he doesn’t do much with the ball in his hands nor can he catch well. He can lineup at fullback if needed, which adds to his versatility. That said, he is very much a jack of all trades, master of none type of player.

While many hype him up as a special teams player, he hasn’t been overly effective there either. He isn’t good enough as a runner to make this roster nor is he good enough as a special teams player to earn him a spot either.

Yes, the Steelers are extremely thin at running back right now, but Edmund’s can’t be a solution. His snaps should go to the undrafted players brought in, as either has a better shot at being a solution for this team.
