Thanks BlackandGold for the breaking news on the release of Gary Russell, I wonder if this move and a few others are part of master plan to sign some of our other veterans with contracts up in 2010?- DYM-
Gary Russell has been released from the Pittsburgh Steelers according to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
The running back from the University of Minnesota was a key asset to our team in the running game as well as the kicking game, and scored a touchdown in our Super Bowl Victory.
However, with the recovery of Mendenhall well on it's way, it seems the Steelers FO is content with seeing Russel walk, and now I think that because of this, FWP's stay with the team will likely go on for a few more year because there's less competition.
Feel free to post your thoughts!
