Limas Sweed cut by CFL's Ottawa Redblacks

Sweed's football career is likely at an end now, seven years after it began when the Steelers selected him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Once again, Limas Sweed's hype greatly outlasted his performance.

Sweed was cut from the expansion franchise Ottawa Redblacks of the Canadian Football League Wednesday, making it the second of two failed attempts to resume his football career north of the border.

We've said it previously and do not want to tempt fate, but it really does seem as if this will be the end of the line for the 29-year-old former Steelers second-round draft pick.

The CFL is absolutely unwatchable. If Sweed couldn't make it on a team of glorified high school players...

This just in: Limas Sweed is a terrible wide receiver. In other news, water is still wet and the sky is still blue. :coffee:

'Glorified'?

Still I thought he'd be flipping burgers by now, so Kudos to him for stringing out that football thing for 7 years.

Damn, when some players crash, they CRASH. Guy was supposed to be the heir apparent and a few years later drummed out of the CFL??? He even sounded like he had his come-to-jesus moment right before his injury.

I guess that's how fleeting success is in the NFL

I remember the days when we were all so excited about Limas. :sadness:
