Roster Recap: An OTA update

The Steelers have moved on to Phase Three of the offseason program, which includes 10 OTAs (organized team activities) and a three-day minicamp that will run from June 14-16.

The team will begin OTAs on Tuesday with a roster that includes a lot of new faces, including a large rookie class.

Here is your chance to catch up on who is in, and who is out, as the offseason progresses.

Phase Two of the Steelers offseason workout program is underway.

Among the veterans new to the team are unrestricted free agents Ladarius Green (tight end), Ryan Harris (offensive tackle), Steven Johnson (linebacker) and Ricardo Mathews (defensive end). In addition, the Steelers re-signed Bruce Gradkowski to a one-year contract in the days following the draft. The Steelers also brought back a familiar face last week when they signed tight end David Johnson, who played for the team from 2009-13.

The Steelers added seven players in the 2016 NFL Draft, including cornerback Artie Burns (1st Round), safety Sean Davis (2nd Round), defensive lineman Javon Hargrave (3rd Round), offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins (4th Round), linebacker Travis Feeney (6th Round), wide receiver/kick returner Demarcus Ayers (7th Round) and linebacker Tyler Matakevich (7th Round).

After the draft the team added 10 rookie free agents, including defensive linemen Johnny Maxey, Giorgio Newberry and Devaunte Sigler, linebacker Tyriq McCord, punter Will Monday, running back Christian Powell, tight ends David Reeves and Jay Rome, offensive lineman Quinton Schooley, and wide receiver Canaan Severin. Powell and Reeves were later released.

Even more changes came when Steelers' rookie minicamp arrived. The team signed four players who were in for tryouts during rookie minicamp, including running backs Brandon Brown-Dukes and Cameron Stingily, wide receiver Marcus Tucker and cornerback Donald Washington.

The team let go of a familiar face when offensive tackle Mike Adams was released, designated with a failed physical. The team also released kicker Ty Long, running backs Abou Toure, and Rajion Neal, wide receiver Tobais Palmer and cornerback Isaiah Frey.
