When News Breaks, We Fix It! *UPDATE!*

Steelers.com has a report about a roster move the Steelers made today.

Alameda Ta'Amu is released in favor of David Gilreath.

It came as quite the shock to me that the Steelers would cut a 4th round pick in favor of a guy that was undrafted.

Gilreath seemed almost unstoppable during the pre-season. Granted, he was going up against 2nd and 3rd stringers, but he was also being chucked the rock from Troy Smith.

Ta'Amu is a mountain of a man, and almost impossible to move off the line. Before the draft, he was actually predicted to go in the late 1st, early 2nd rounds. He fell all the way down into the 4th before the Steelers moved up to select him. That's right folks. If you don't remember, they liked this kid so much they moved up to get him. The last time they did that was for, I believe, SanDoobie-o Holmes, and the time before that was in 2003. Do you remember who that guy was?

Anyhoo, I thought for sure they would have gotten rid of Demarcus Van Dyke or Brad Johnson to activate Gilreath.

Discuss!

UPDATE: Alameda Ta'Amu is now a member of the practice squad!
