Cuts, Trade

Pittsburgh released 20 players from its roster today, including its third- and fourth-string quarterbacks. The released players include P Mike Barr, QB Shane Boyd, OL Tim Brown, TE Charles Davis, TE Jon Dekker, DE Orien Harris, RB Cedric Humes, QB Omar Jacobs, FB Branden Joe, FB John Kuhn, S Mike Lorello, CB Anthony Madison, WR Lee Mays, DE Shaun Nua, DT Scott Paxson, LB Richard Seigler, LB Ron Stanley, OT Brandon Torrey, DE Lee Vickers and WR Walter Young.

The team also announced that OT Barrett Brooks was placed on the Reserve/Injured list after injuring his quadriceps in the team's preseason finale.

Meanwhile, the Steelers executed a trade with an unlikely trading partner, sending a conditional 2007 draft choice to the New England Patriots in exchange for rookie free-agent RB Patrick Cobbs (North Texas).
