Perspective Of An Average Steelers Fan: Steelers Around The League

Former Steelers Around the League

Early last season, I took a quick look at the rosters from around the NFL and found 16 former Steelers on active rosters. Teams tucked away two others on practice squads and placed at least four more on injured reserve or suspended.

This year, I found 23 former Steelers on other team’s current 53-man rosters. Three others are on injured reserve lists and two on practice squads outside of Pittsburgh. NFL rosters are very dynamic. Brian Mihalik was on the New York Giants 53-man roster just a few days ago but was just cut.

Once again, the New York Jets are the only team with more than two former Steelers on their active roster. Here are the former Steelers appearing on other team’s rosters so far in 2019 (let me know who I missed):

53-man Rosters

New York Jets RB Le’Veon Bell
New York Jets OT Kelvin Beachum
New York Jets NT Steve McLendon
Cincinnati Bengals CB B.W. Webb
Cincinnati Bengals K Randy Bullock
Cleveland Browns OT Chris Hubbard
Cleveland Browns S Morgan Burnett
Indianapolis Colts QB Brian Hoyer
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders
Denver Broncos WR Diontae Spencer
Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown
Oakland Raiders DE Josh Mauro
Dallas Cowboys CB CJ Goodwin
Philadelphia Eagles LB LJ Fort
Washington Redskins LB Jon Bostic
Chicago Bears NT Nick Williams
Detroit Lions TE Jesse James
Carolina Panthers CB Ross Cockrell
Tampa Bay Buccaneers OT Jerald Hawkins
Arizona Cardinals OT Marcus Gilbert
Arizona Cardinals C AQ Shipley
San Francisco 49ers LS Colin Holba
Seattle Seahawks DT Al Woods


Could almost make a team out of that group.

Practice Squads

Baltimore Ravens G RJ Prince
Denver Broncos OT Jake Rodgers


Reserve Lists

New York Jets TE Bucky Hodges on IR
New York Giants LB Keion Adams on IR

I always like to offer a music selection. I met a young artist in Manila named Jay Kent trying to make it. Here is her page singing Attention.
