Steelers cut roster to 75; no big names released

There were no significant names among the first round of cuts the Steelers made today as they trimmed their roster to 75 players.

The most notable cut was veteran outside linebacker Andre Frazier, who was released from the injured reserve list. Frazier, who didn't practice during training camp and the preseason because of a knee injury, played on the Steelers' Super Bowl-winning teams in 2005 and 2008.

The Steelers also released fullback Dwyane Wright, guard Adrian Jones, cornerback David Pittman and linebacker Brandon Renkart.

The Steelers also placed rookie offensive lineman Chris Scott (foot) on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. The fifth-round draft choice will miss the first six weeks of the regular season.

Final cuts will be made at the end of the week as the Steelers have to set their 53-man roster by 6 p.m. Saturday.
