Steelers make roster moves to get down to 75

The cutdowns have started for the Steelers, as on Tuesday they made 6 roster moves to get down to the league mandated 75 roster total.

Players that were released from the active roster include linebacker Brandon Renkart, running back Dwayne Wright, cornerback David Pittman and tackle Adrian Jones.

The team also put rookie tackle Chris Scott on the reserve PUP list and he will miss the first 6 weeks of the season with a foot injury. The Steelers will then have a two-week window to look at Scott in practice before deciding to move him up to the 53-man roster, release him or put him on injured reserve.

Last but not least, the team released veteran linebacker Andre Frazier, as he was on the injured reserve list. The Steelers now sit at 75 players on the active roster and will need to trim to 53 players by September 4th.
