They do not have cheerleaders. In the 1960's there was a club called the Steelerettes that recruited from a local college. They were disbanded when the college got it's own football team. alot of steelers fans don't want them

Players who are cut become free agents and can negotiate with any team. While the vast majority of these players do not play in the NFL again there are some who do and become very good players, even Hall of Famers. Maybe the most famous player who was cut was John Unitas, Hall of Fame quarterback, who was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers and released. He signed with the Baltimore Colts and became one of the most feared and respected quarterbacks of all times. So it can happen.
The fifth-oldest franchise in the NFL, the Steelers were founded on July 8, 1933 by Arthur Joseph Rooney.

The three shapes in the Steel mark logo are called hypocycloids. They represent the three major components of steelmaking, and have become more closely related to the professional football team than with the original company! I am a lifelong Steelers fan. I was always under the impression that those shapes were the symbol of the Steel Industry and that the team adopted it. Can anyone, maybe from Pittsburgh, shed light edit: from neonmik98: yea and no. the three diamonds are from the us steel company. 7 on the way ! Crazzylver3: The City of Pittsburgh was most famous for their oil and their steel and when the birth of the football team came around they named them the Steelers and used their steel emblem but put their name on it The Steelers emblem is the same as the steel making companies except where the word Steelers is the steel making companies is just steel.
