So the Steelers finally cut Alameda Ta’amu, weeks after he was charged with many, many violations of the law for trying to outrun and run over some cops on the South Side.
What took them so long? Don’t worry, if he clears waivers they’ll put him on the practice squad and he may even return to the 53-man roster once Antonio Brown gets over that “mild” high ankle sprain as Mike Tomlin called it (that now looks as though will keep him out at least through the next two games). They signed wide receiver David Gilreath from the practice squad.
They do risk another team claiming him tomorrow – waivers do not clear for 24 hours or 4 p.m. eastern. But so what? It’s a risk worth taking. Another team has to put him on their 53-man roster if they claim him. You cannot claim a player and put him on the practice squad. If he clears, he can sign to any practice squad but if the Steelers want him, he’d be a fool to sign elsewhere.
Do you think it would help his case with the local law if he’s no longer a Steelers and signs with, say, the Ravens?
I’ll have more later and I’ll try to get to some of your questions. And, of course, I’ll have a prediction.
