The trade was the Steelers' third in the past two days and fifth major move in the past week.

Sources say Mike Mitchell and Sean Davis both expect to play Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, but they've missed some time in the preseason, with Mitchell missing more than a month. Wilcox was seeing action as the third safety in the Bucs' "big nickel" packages, however. Wilcox from the Dallas Cowboys this offseason and selecting Texas A&M's Justin Evans with a second-round draft pick. It remains the only season of his four-year career in which he has started all 16 regular-season contests, having finished the year with a career-high 81 tackles and three interceptions. Dangerfield had some good moments in camp but suffered a mild ankle sprain in the preseason finale, which accentuates the need for Wilcox. Ward has a salary of $2.125 million this season and $3.125 million in 2018. Ward had been scheduled to make a non-guaranteed $4.5 million with the Broncos in the final year of the four-year contract he signed in 2014 but was cut after three seasons.

Just a day after the Steelers announced their 53-man roster, it has already changed.
