Myron Rolle among Steelers' cuts
By Jamison Hensley
The Steelers announced their 15 moves to get down to the 75-player limit. Unlike the Ravens, the Steelers aren't going with an undrafted rookie at kicker, waiving Daniel Hrapmann.
Of those who were cut, the biggest name was safety Myron Rolle, a former Rhodes Scholar. He was a sixth-round pick by the Titans in 2010 and was cut by Tennessee before the 2011 season began.
Here are the other players waived by the Steelers: LB Ryan Baker, DT Mike Blanc, WR Paul Cox, CB Andre Freeman, LB Mortty Ivy (injury-waived), OL Kyle Jolly, LS Matt Katula, TE Jamie McCoy, CB Walter McFadden, TE Justin Peelle, WR Juamorris Stewart, DT Kade Weston and WR Jimmy Young.
Teams must get down to 53 players by 9 p.m. Friday.
