The preseason process is just about to wrap up and that brings around one of the toughest times of the year for those involved within the NFL. August 29th marks the day when the Steelers and the other 31 teams in the league have to trim their roster down to 53 players. Each team currently holds the allotted 90-man limit, but that will change soon.

Once four o'clock rolls around on Tuesday, players will have their dreams of making an NFL roster known. Some will make the team and others will be cut. Some of those released will either be picked up by other NFL clubs, signed to the teams practice squad, or looking for a new career path. It is going to be interesting when it comes to Pittsburgh's final decision on who to keep and who to let go.

An experienced veteran on defense might not make the roster

There are still a couple of things to determine when it comes to the final spots to fill out the roster for this club. The depth across the defensive line is one of those spots that still need to be situated moving forward. There are likely two or three spots up for grabs and four players in the trenches are trying to secure one of those slots.

Those four fighting for roster positioning are Breiden Fehoko, Montravius Adams, Isaiahh Loudermilk, and Armon Watts. It is going to be a struggle for Watts to make this team when final cuts roll through. He has done some good things in training camp and the preseason, but nothing to write home about. Watts's experience will help him, but he will likely lose his spot to Loudermilk or Adams when it is all finished.
