Wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ryan Switzer, has been waived in hopes of narrowing down to the mandatory 53 man roster.
The Steeler met the 53 man limit this Saturday afternoon, cutting their previous roster by 34 percent. Wide receiver, Ryan Switzer, was one of the 27 cuts from the roster.
Due, to the lack of preseason games and lack of an offseason, evaluations on players were based on performance at the training camp, according to the Steelerwire. Of the cuts, 15 of the players were part of the offense. Among the players waived, defensive lineman Daniel McCullers and defensive back Antoine Brooks Jr. Both were sixth-round picks during the 2020 NFL draft. Switzer was among those on the injury list, last week.
“I feel like I have enough information to make decisions, and that’s a good thing because it’s time to make decisions,” Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin said to the FAN Friday.
Practice Squad Moving Up
Tomorrow, the Steelers will announce 16 players from the Steelers practice squad to the main team. One player that is looking to replace Switzer is wide receiver, Raymond “Ray-Ray” McCloud, according to Behind the Steel Curtain.
The Game Haus reported on August 21, that McCloud had been picked up by the Steelers, and now is the prime candidate to take Svitzer’s place.
“Similar to the unbelievable success story of Devlin “Duck” Hodges last year, McCloud somehow failed to get the memo that he was nothing more than camp fodder, choosing instead to ball out and leave it all on the field. Let the chips fall where they may.” Writer Shannon White of Behind the Steel Curtain wrote last Wednesday.
The Steeler’s first game is against the Giants at MetLife Stadium on September 13.
