Veteran punter Brian Moorman failed to seize the opportunity to out-kick Drew Butler, so it's no surprise Moorman is gone.
The other notable name to get cut was corner Josh Victorian, whose tackling was suspect. His departure saves the job, for the time being, of Curtis Brown, who needs to step up his game at corner and continue to make his mark on special teams, if he is to stick around for long.
Also spared the axe today were offensive linemen Guy Whimper and John Malecki, tight ends Matt Spaeth and Michael Palmer, receiver Derrick Moye, linebackers Chris Carter and Kion Wilson, safety DaMon Cromartie-Smith, corner Isiah Green and nose tackle Hebron Fangupo.
A few of those names will provoke heated discussion among Steelers fans. No surprise there, either.
