The past few days have been busy for the Pittsburgh Steelers front office. See below for a list of recent personnel moves and rumors.
Ike Taylor – The Pittsburgh Steelers biggest need was cornerback due to the youth and uncertainty at the position. The Steelers signed Taylor to a long term deal.
Max Starks – The Steelers made a surprise move and cut starting left tackle Max Starks. Starks had neck surgery this offseason which may have just ended his career. There is also reports that Starks weighed in at nearly 4o0 pounds.
Shaun Suisham – Even though he had a very poor FG attempt in the Super Bowl, Suisham was 14 for 15 for nearly a 94% success rate last season.
Antwaan Randel El – A long time Steeler (before his short stay in Washington) was cut. This was likely due to the Steelers being 10+ million over the cap and amount of young talent at the WR position. Randel El will always be remembered for his diversified play and his performance in Super Bowl XL.
