Guy is supposed to be able to get after the QB, was cut because of the depth the Steelers had at OLB

 

Pretty good write up.

The Steelers ask their outside linebackers to drop into coverage more than most 3-4 teams. Being a defensive end at Toledo, this is not something Skipper is used to doing, and it’s not something we have seen much of from him in the preseason. Couple that with his three special teams snaps and it doesn’t bode well for him making the team.

Mike Tomlin could choose to keep him on as a pass-rushing specialist, or he could be stashed on the practice squad. Either way, the one thing we know for sure is that Tuzar Skipper has a future in the NFL. It’s just a matter of when.
