QB: Ben Roethlisberger
Backups: Byron Leftwich, Dennis Dixon
Notes: Batch gets released after week 4.
RB: Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Mewelde Moore
FB: Frank Summers
Notes: Summers makes the squad because he's not very good and Tomlin loves it. Our 'steal' Dwyer gets sent to the PS where he's likely scooped up by another team.
WR 1: Hines Ward, Antwaan Randle El
WR 2: Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders, Antonio Brown
Notes: I believe Randle El and Battle are fighting for a spot on the team and I'm leaning towards the prior staying with us. Tomlin knows Brown is too good to stay safe on the PS.
TEs (3): Heath Miller, Matt Spaeth, David Johnson.
Notes: No surprises here
LT: Max Starks, Tony Hills
LG: Chris Kemoeatu
C: Maurkice Pouncey, Doug Legursky
RG: Trai Essex, Ramon Foster
RT: Flozell Adams, Jonathan Scott
Hartwig gets cut after losing his starting job. There's no real reason to keep his salary. Legursky is just as good as him for less than half the price.
NT: Casey Hampton, Chris Hoke
LDE: Aaron Smith, Ziggy Hood
RDE: Brett Keisel, Sonny Harris, Doug Worthington
Harris beats out Eason as he and Ziggy provide much needed youth to this unit.
ROLB: James Harrison, Jason Worilds
LOLB: Lamarr Woodley, Thaddeus Gibson
Buck: James Farrior, Keyaron Fox,
Mack: Lawrence Timmons, Larry Foote, Stevenson Sylvester
Notes: Andre Frazier’s injury allows Sylvester to make the roster. Farrior will eventually relinquish is buck position to Timmons as the season progresses.
RCB: Ike Taylor
LCB: Bryant McFadden, Keenan Lewis
Nickel/Dime: William Gay, Joe Burnett
S: Ryan Clark, Ryan Mundy
SS: Troy Polamalu, Will Allen
Notes: Tomlin will have to choose between our ST's gunner and return man. I think Logan edges Madison as we have a plethora of new guys to improve our return coverage all around. Bailey gets cut.
Specialists (4): Jeff Reed, Daniel Sepulveda, Greg Warren, Stefan Logan
Notes: I can't see Tomlin cutting Logan after he set the Steelers kick return record under any circumstance unless Brown takes one or two to the house in the final 2 preseason games.
