Roc has played for the Raiders. He a very good special teamer. Once was a pretty good all around player. That isn't the case anymore and just a special team player. In today's football you have to do more to get a job on 53 man roster.
So has Schillens. I think we're all stocked up thanks

Preciate everything the Bills have done for me thus far, wasn't the right fit, best of luck to the team and the organization
Positives: Heady player who always seems to be at the right place at the right time. Attacks ball carriers in a hurry if a lane opens up in front of him. Regularly flows to the ball using the correct attack angle. Dips shoulder or attacks blockers directly when filling gaps. Can anchor to maintain the line of scrimmage. Identifies and avoids pulling guards and fights off multiple blockers in traffic using lateral quickness and strong hands to find his way to the ball carrier. Will hurdle trash on the ground to get into the backfield. Underrated athlete capable of covering running backs out of the backfield. Regularly breaks up passes. Possesses the length and aggressive nature to be a
solid tackler. Strikes ball carriers with reckless abandon. Good closing speed and strong hands to be effective as a blitzer. Weaknesses: Loses the ball and overruns plays at times, sometimes because he is attacking his assigned gap and other times because he is asked to be so aggressive. Lacks great upper-body bulk to keep from being engulfed by NFL-caliber linemen. Fair in dropping into his zone, but could be a bit more fluid moving backwards. Has only adequate upper-body strength to corral stronger ball carriers in the open field. Lacks pass-rush moves.
Efficient. That definition describes the Pittsburgh Steelers - even in their roster cuts.
While other teams' final cuts are still yet to be made or yet to be announced at least, the Steelers have wasted no time in setting their 53-man roster hours ahead of tonight's deadline.
According to the team's website, the Steelers have let go of 21 players and put linebacker Sean Spence on injured reserve. Most notable among Pittsburgh's cuts are offensive lineman Trai Essex, who played in 76 games for Pittsburgh and punter Jeremy Kapinos, who was waived/injured.
Other cuts included defensive backs Damon Cromartie-Smith, Terrence Frederick and Josh Victorian, linebackers Brandon Hicks and Marshall McFadden, defensive linemen Corbin Bryant, Igbinosun Ikponmwosa and Jake Stoller, quarterback Jerrod Johnson, running back DuJuan Harris, wide receivers Tyler Beiler, Toney Clemons, David Gilreath, Marquis Maze and Derrick Williams, and offensive linemen Ryan Lee, John Malecki and Chris Scott.
so was anybody good actually cut from another team today?
