No surprises so far. Sternberger, a very talented TE, failed to elevate himself ahead of Kevin Rader and Connor Heyward for the third tight end spot. Carter wasn’t all that impressive in his short stint with the team. The same can be said for Stephens, as all three of these guys were expected as obvious cuts

Credit to my dad, I have been a lifelong Steelers fan. I have fond memories of watching the Steelers win two Super Bowls when I was a little kid. I have only been to 1 Steelers game in my life, which was in Kansas City. That was the notorious game where Antonio Brown pinned it against his chest down the sidelines for a touchdown. I hope to get to Heinz Field some day! I graduated from Iowa State University and look forward to growing as a writer with #SteelerNation!
