4 positional groups the Steelers must still add to after roster cutdowns

The Steelers have set their initial roster following today’s cutdown, and while the roster looks fine on paper, there can still be some tweaking. While every team in the NFL has some form of stable roster now, the next 24 hours will see even more movement. A slew of players are now eligible to be claimed and signed. Add in the numerous players that will get moved to injured reserve and the league moves are far from over.

The Steelers are no strangers to these after-cutdown moves. More often than now, a waiver claim or two could be made and fringe players who made the initial roster are cut to make room.

While the roster seems put together right now, don’t be surprised to see some additional new faces get added by tomorrow. Here are the four positional groups the Steelers should consider adding to.

Steelers could look for a new quarterback

Of the four groups on this list, quarterback is far and away the least likely addition to occur. The Steelers had a strong trio on paper heading into camp, and undrafted free agent Tanner Morgan didn’t threaten any of them. That said, Mason Rudolph also had a weaker offseason, and I would be all for a different third quarterback being on the roster.

This isn’t a move that has to happen, but if a name is out there that this team liked previously, even if they are raw, it would make sense to add them over Rudolph. His development arch is likely done, and while he is a fine third quarterback to have, I’d be more than happy to add a new face to develop. Again, this is least likely to happen, but I would at least be open to adding a new third quarterback to this roster.
