    Frank "the Tank" gone

    Frank Summers has been signed by San Diego according to Ed at PG. Not really any sadness from me. I thought he was even a waste of a practice squad member.

    Given the fact that he was more of a true Full Back, he wasn't going to have a good chance of making in impact in our offense anyways. Frank The Tank though, you gotta love that nickname

    Cool
    I had high hopes of him coming out of college. Sure enough though, as soon as I saw that getting him didn't mean going with a traditional fullback, I lost said hopes.

    Why, though? The only team that I've seen run a three back system was Dallas, and it didn't work out too well with them.

    We've got Mendenhall, Redman, and Dwyer, plus an option to re-negotiate Moore's contract. And Summers was more of true fullback anyway.

    We shall see if its Arians and his great confidence building and love for a FB... or if Summers was really only a big college runner at UNLV and thats it. We will all be keeping an eye on him im sure.

    This thread is a true testament to how bored we all must be. To talk about a guy who never even played a single game in 2 or 3 years. . .Good Luck in SanDiego - except vs the Steelers.

    RB is not an issue in Pittsburgh, and hopefully won't be for about 8 to 10 years.

    Frank declined to sign....


    Running back Frank Summers, a fifth-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2009, has signed a contract with the San Diego Chargers as a free agent.

    Summers made the team as a rookie and played in two games, starting one before they put him on injured reserve with a back injury that required surgery. He lost out the past season to rookie halfback Jonathan Dwyer on the 53-man roster and spent 2010 on their practice squad. He declined to sign a contract after the season.
