Nate signed and Noah released
 
The Steelers today signed wide receiver Nate Washington from the practice squad and released rookie running back Noah Herron to make room for Washington on the roster.

hmmmm......i wonder why? oh well i like nate so i'm glad he made it back on the regular roster, noah will probably be signed to the practice squad.

I like the move....

This could be because Duce is back coupled with the emergence of Willie Parker, or because the Quincy Morgan project is not working out, or because Morey is injured and they need active roster insurance.... but I hope they signed him because they think he can contribute and become a special player in the future.

yeah i hope so, if ARE leaves this season, nate can probably step up and be our next willie parker for the passing game.

with 4 healthy rb's + d. krieder noah didnt have a snowballs chance in hell touching the ball. nate washington actually has a shot in 4 or 5 wr sets (not that the steelers use those too often but could present problems with a depleted secondary such as the patriots. im sure it was a move to give belichick something to think about after most practices have been conducted. the chess match continues........

Thats my guess. Plus Duce going though 2 weeks of practice.

From what I have heard from my friend that knows him, he says he will get some time in there. I really like this kid and I think he can be something great in the future! He's young, talented , and has a great head on his shoulders!

This move, IMO, is more based becuz Duce is getting healthy, and Jerome is on the mend.. They really were holding their breath hoping no one would pick Nate off of our PS. Now they signed him, and I'd look for Herron to go on the PS as well.

thats good to hear. after releasing mays and f. gibson we need some young depth we can develop at the position. of course we could go out and sign every free agant scrub at the position like the patriots do................ :grin: (wilson and morgan notwithstanding)
