The Steelers have released tight end Weslye Saunders, a second-year undrafted free agent out of South Carolina. Saunders was suspended for the first four games of this season by the NFL. In his rookie year of 2011, Saunders had four receptions and one touchdown

He wasn't a draft pick, but he might be the most talented TE on the roster besides Miller.

David Paulson made this a much easier decision. He's come a long way and Saunders missing all this time was his downfall.

edited that statement for you :)



If hes cut now, that seems like they knew they were going to cut him anyways... we keep him around?

found this on twitter:

@CBSSteelers
As initially expected, the #Steelers cut TE Weslye Saunders on day he was eligible to come off NFL suspension.Club needs him, too. #Tough'12

MEASURABLY BETTER THAN Paulson I guess they held his college trouble against him. but i will say 4 games for adderal is harsh.the only thing i don't know is if he tested positive more than once before they gave him four games.think about it those *******s on the saints got less games than him and they wanted to hurt ppl. oh well we have bigger problems like woodley becoming achina doll and polamalu getting old .

I don't think this is a very good move unless he came into practice strung out, etc. The offense has been using H. Miller very effectively and Saunders has shown good hands. I just don;t think Paulson has IT. I would rather have seen Pope released than WS. Just a crappy year for the steelers F.O. imo.

@AdamSchefter: Indianapolis' Weslye Saunders has been suspended the first eight games this year for violating policy on performance enhancing substances.

Yep, the story is here: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/22811761/colts-te-weslye-saunders-suspended-eight-games-for-ped-violation

Now all of those people complaining about his release can shut up. :-)

We criticize a lot of the front office decisions but need to remember that Colbert and Tomlin make their decisions with A LOT more information than we have. They see a guy every day in practice, see his work habits in the gym, know his maturity level, etc. All of this comes into play when they make a decision and they may have seen this second suspension coming because of it.

This could be a damn shame. Kid was on Adderall and his first suspension was failure to report use. I will hold judgement until facts come out.

That's not a stretch, considering both there all pro TEs are out. Heck, by the end of the season, there's a good chance you play TE for the Pats as well.
