Report: More Names Released of Those Cut – RB Redman and Safety Mundy Among Them

The Post-Gazette has gotten a couple more names that have been released by the Steelers:

Running backs Carey Davis, Justin Vincent and rookie Isaac Redman, linebacker Bruce Davis and veteran cornerback Anthony Madison were among the players who were informed of their release yesterday.

Also among the 22 players who were waived is former Penn State center A.Q. Shipley, a Moon High School graduate and one of the team’s seventh-round draft choices. Shipley said he was told the Steelers will try to sign him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

One local player who made it is safety Ryan Mundy, who played at Woodland Hills High School, Michigan and West Virginia. Tomlin confirmed that Mundy and kick-returner Stefan Logan sealed their positions on the 53-man roster with their performances in the final preseason game Thursday night in Carolina.

Redman was the star back of camp, but it was not enough for him to make the final roster.

    your headline is misleading. Mundy made the team, yet you imply that he is cut in the heading alongside Redman’s name (who was cut).

    I agree with Blitz… i clicked on this B/C I had seen a previous article that said it wasnt official but that Mundy’s performance thursday night has proven to Tomlin that he deserves a spot on the team… then I see this headline AFTER the deadline and think DAMN Mundy got cut afterall????? FIX your headline PLEASE

    The decision to cut Redman was motivated at least in part by financial considerations. For a rookie to unseat a 1st round draft pick in his second year, with guaranteed money on the line, the rookie must be better by a wide margin. Redman is better than Mendenhall as a power back, but we don’t know if he can catch swing passes and protect the QB as well as Mendenhall, because he had so few opportunities. Apparently, the difference in talent did not outweight the cost; we’ll have to trust the coaches on this one. Redman’s success in preseason was widely followed by fans and other NFL teams; his chances of making it through waivers are slim. Which means the Steelers are still without a reliable short yardage back — unless Tomlin has plans for turning J. Harrison into a latter day Refrigerator Perry.

    Without Davis or Mchugh, who will be the H-back or FB? I imagine Summers and Spaeth get some reps there but Im not confident either way. Then again, Arians loves the single back, so….

    Happily, I was wrong; Redman did clear waivers and re-sign to the Practice Squad (along with most of our developmental talent). He will find his way onto the 53 roster before the season’s over. Welcome back, Isaac!
