    Not too much of a shocker. Another 3.5ish million cap money gone with Mcfade and Battle. As said keep the cap hits coming.

    I agree that Battle never amounted to much (special teams), but we added WR Juamorris Stewart. Why?

    Stewart has no dominant physical traits, poor work ethic and takes plays off on running downs.

    This is a guy we want on our practice squad?

    I always liked McFadden but like Ktrain said the dude never got past those injuries. He should have been cut in the last round of roster moves before the season last year.

    Battle may not have always made the play on special teams but he did his job so others could. They won't lose much on special teams though with him gone; Baron Batch will be a beast in that role in 2012 when he gets back on the field.

    I like many other Steelers fans will always be grateful to Bryant McFadden for breaking up that pass to Reggie Wayne in the end zone in that amazing playoff game in 2005 against the Colts in Indy which lead to the Steelers of course going on to win Super Bowl XL. People will always talk about the Ben tackle on Nick Harper in that game after the Bettis fumble, but a lot of people tend to forget the play McFadden made on Reggie Wayne on an absolutely perfect thrown ball by Peyton Manning on 2nd down after the Colts got the ball back and before Vanderjact shanked the game tying FG was absolutely huge. Say what you want but the Steelers dont win that game if McFadden doesnt make that play on Wayne it's as simple as that...

    AB was a waste of space period, BM was never the same once he left, I wonder who's next?
