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.

Steam newcomers hold down the No. 1 spot in four of 14 starting positions, including running back, in the first Atlanta Steam depth chart for the 2016 season released on Wednesday by third-year head coach Dane Robinson. First-year Steam members also hold down starting slots at wide receiver, cornerback, and defensive end following the first of several preseason minicamps.

The talent and experience assembled is the deepest fielded in the four-year history of the franchise and guarantees heated competition for the starting nod at a number of positions.
