    ** CUTS ARE IN **

    I knew Haynes wouldn't make it ...


    Okobi, Haynes among those cut by Steelers


    Okobi, Haynes among those cut by Steelers Saturday, September 01, 2007 By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Chukky Okobi, who came to training camp as the starting center, and running back Verron Haynes were among the players cut today by Coach Mike Tomlin as the Steelers reduced their roster to the final 53-player limit, the Post-Gazette has learned.

    Also included in the cut were three rookie draft choices - defensive end Ryan McBean, a fourth-round pick; guard Cameron Stephenson (fifth) and wide receiver Dallas Baker (seventh).

    Defensive end Shaun Nua, a seventh-round choice in 2005, and former special teams co-captain Chidi Iwuoma were also cut.

    Haynes, a fifth-round draft choice in 2002, has been the team's third-down back for most of his career. But three of his previous five seasons have ended early because of knee injuries, including last season when he missed the final nine games.

    Also cut were fullback John Kuhn, quarterback Bryan Randall, receivers Walter Young and Gerran Walker; tight ends Cody Boyd and Jon Dekker, tackles Jason Capizzi and Brandon Torrey; nose tackle Scott Paxson, linebackers Ron Stanley and Marquis Cooper; cornerbacks Anthony Madison and Jovon Johnson; and safeties Grant Mason and Mike Lorello.

    Damn Capizzi got cut. Every cut player has to clear waivers before they can be signed to the practice squad. Capizzi is gone.....

    i don't think so, he was passed up over 200 times in the draft, i think he clears waivers

    Thanks ICS.
    None are really surprises accept for Okobi which I'm sure it was due to his salary and not being the starter.
    Haynes was nice while healthy and his lack of being able to stay on the field made him expendable with the likes of a healthy Russell and Davis fighting for rosters spots.
    Shaun Nua lasted this long with the team, 2 years, because of Cowher.
    And apparently McBean did not show enough for consideration to even be a project player.
    I was hoping Capizzi would of worked out and helped the O-line.

    yeah but I'm sure other teams have heard about him by now, his potential is whats important.
