The Pittsburgh Steelers trimmed their roster down to 53 active players on Saturday and since that time they've already replaced three of those players with players who were let go by other teams. During his Tuesday press conference, head coach Mike Tomlin said they are continuing to sift through more players, and that leads one to believe that the roster shuffling isn't done. "We'll continue to compare the bottom side of our roster versus the field like all teams do this time of year," said Tomlin. "You'd like to think it'd get off in a fluid manner in terms of 53, but that's just not the reality of today's NFL. There're a lot of quality players out there we're in the process of evaluating them and actually yesterday acquired a couple of them." If anything, Tomlin let his players on the bottom end of the roster know that no job is safe right now. In addition to adding center Cody Wallace, defensive back Antwon Blake and punter Zoltan Mesko, the Steelers also signed linebacker Terence Garvin off their practice squad on Tuesday after placing tight end Matt Spaeth on the injured reserve list with the designated to return tag. Garvin's vacant spot on the eight-man unit was filled by wide receiver Kashif Moore, who was waived on Saturday and now that cornerback Isaiah Green has cleared waivers, there's a possibility that he could be signed to practice squad prior to the team practicing on Wednesday. The Steelers head into the 2013 season with depth issues on their offensive line as well as their tight end and linebacker positions, so they will not hesitate to upgrade moving forward, if not this week, possibly after the Sunday season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
