    shame he was released, classic example of not keeping a raw player long enough, which is infuriating considering they have kept way worse players way longer. i hope they bring him back
    I also agree 100% here. This kid is going to be a beast as long as he gets his head out of his a$$. I was so happy when the Steelers drafted him; shame to see him not contribute to anything this year. Makes you wonder if he would walk a straighter line if he were more involved. Not an excuse, just sayin. . .

    Wasted 4th round draft pick. Pisses me off to no end. We're likely going to have to draft another fairly soon. But this next draft, we need a safety and an OLB I think. Someone to get pressure on the QB for a change!!

    I really can't see anyone signing him. He's looking at multiple felony charges that could put him in jail for years, not to mention that he barely made the team out of camp in the first place. Not exactly high on the list of desirability.

    If Ta'amu doesn't sign elsewhere then I'm sure he will be back and Gilreath back down...Depends how long AB is out to.....

    Sucks, he did something stupid and it possibly ruined his NFL career. Alot of a holes in
    this league have done far worse and been given another chance. I wasn't so gung ho
    as others were with this kid. He was a average NT on a mediocre Washington Huskies team.
    With our desperate need for run stuffer's and push up the middle it troubled me that he couldn't
    make the team and then his run in with the law sealed his fate. Doubt he comes back here.
    Someone will take a gamble on him though.

    I suspect he is gone because the Steelers legal team feels he will get time. No sense keeping a guy doing 1-3 in the pokey.

    If they don't keep him there is plenty of NT in the draft that are better than him

    Hopefully we can keep Gilreath out of the damn return game now too.

    Tomlin needs to stop being a f*cking pussy when it comes to letting Rainey return punts. He's a brilliant punt returner, and with AB out, you put David f*cking Gilreath back there? Are you f*cking serious?
