    will limas sweed share time with hines ward this upcoming season

    I think they will give him another chance he will have till the end of camp to earn a spot or he will be cut. What do you think?

    Share time with Ward? Well that's assuming that Ward is suddenly demoted to 3rd or 4th string. At the start of the year Ward and Wallace will be the starters, but Brown & Sanders will get significant time. Between the 4 of them, Sweed would be the 5th if he makes the team.

    I hope he is able to do it and make some contributions this year, certainly more than Battle did. However considering the 4 starters we have now it won't be easy. Battle can still make the team as a special teams ace. At that point it's a matter of how many wide outs Tomlin wants to keep.

    No if anything Sanders will but they won't let Hines miss any snaps barring injury, unfortunately. Sweed will get a shot at a roster spot for sure though.

    ARE needs to be the one cut. Sweed has massive upside.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    i think el is on the way out and sweeds fate relies heavily on TC and how he performs as a big target on the outside around all these smaller guys.

    draft will tell alot about what they think of sweed

    I am confident that Sweed is going to do well this upcoming season. I would love to see a four wideout set with Wallace, Sweed, Sanders, and Brown. So much speed.

    I am really optimistic about this players future. I know a lot of Steeler fans are rooting for him. He could be very helpful.

    Sweed has had a massive upside ever since he was drafted but he just hasn't panned out yet. I had huge hopes for him in 2010 and really thought he was on the upswing but then the injury happened and his season never got off the ground. I'm rooting for him as much as anyone but I'm not convinced he can make it yet personally.
