Head coach Dane Robinson led the Atlanta Steam onto the field for the final sessions of the preseason last weekend with veterans fighting to keep their starting jobs and rookies fighting to make the roster. After evaluating the player performances over the last month, Robinson and his experienced staff made the final decisions about which athletes would wear the red and black this season. As expected, the final roster includes several new faces.

The most recent Atlanta Steam depth chart, released by head coach Dane Robinson on Monday, reflects evaluations following the weekend minicamp. The chart, the second released for the 2016 season, has few changes from the first. While the practices did much to solidify some positions there are battles at tight end on the offensive side of the ball as well as defensive end (L), cornerback (L and R), and free safety on the defensive side.
