Steelers re-sgn Ta'amu to practice squad




By Gerry Dulac / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have re-signed rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and placed him on the practice squad.

Ta'amu was released from the 53-man roster last week when the Steelers promoted wide receiver David Gilreath from the practice squad because of the injury to wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Ta'amu, though, was not claimed on waivers by another team and eligible to re-sign with the Steelers.

Ta'amu faces a number of felony and misdemeanor charges for a confrontation with Pittsburgh police on the South Side in which he is accused of fighting with officers while drunk and trying to escape.
