Pittsburgh announced five roster cuts to get down to Tuesday's 85-man limit: wide receiver Isaiah McKoy, offensive tackle Brandon Walton, kicker Sam Sloman, defensive tackle Abdullah Anderson and defensive back Stephen Denmark.
McKoy, Walton and Denmark are a trio of undrafted free agents from the past few seasons. Sloman kicked 10-of-12 field goal attempts with the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans last year, but Chris Boswell remains the starter in Pittsburgh. Anderson has played seven games across the past two seasons with the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings.
