Cut Down Day

The Steelers have their roster down to 53 players going into next Monday night against the Washington Redskins.  I had looked it over and here is my take on it.   The secondary is going to be better with the draft picks and the trade to acquire Justin Gilbert from the Cleveland Browns.  The running game will be outstanding even with Lev’eon Bell serving a 3 game drug suspension. DeAngelo Williams can handle the chores until Bell’s return in week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.  The backup quarterback will be Landry Jones, and with Bruce Gradkowski on IR due to a hamstring injury.  They signed Zach Mettenberger off of waivers to be their 3rd string quarterback.  Depth at linebacker is somewhat of a concern with Bud Dupree went on IR due to a groin injury.  Leadership will not be a problem on this team because they have it.     The only thing that can derail the possibility of seventh Super Bowl title if Ben Roethlisberger being hurt for an extended period of time.
