Additionally, the Steelers traded a 2008 conditional draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons for return specialist/cornerback Allen Rossum. Rossum (5-8, 178), a 10-year veteran from Notre Dame, was originally drafted in the third round (85th overall) of the 1998 by the Philadelphia Eagles. He then was traded to the Green Bay Packers and spent two seasons (2000-01) with the team before signing with the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent on March 13, 2002.

Rossum, a 2005 Pro Bowl selection as a special teams returner, holds the Falcons record for career punt return yards (1,723), career kickoff return yards (5,489) and career punt returns for touchdowns (2).

All NFL teams may sign up to eight players to their practice squad after noon on Sunday, Sept. 2.

Looks like Tomlin is also not completely sold on Reid just yet.

Here is a clip of Rossom running a 50 yd return vs the Bengals last week. If he doesn't start as the primary return man in the opener. Expect him to be starting come Week 2.

The return is after the Bengals first score.
