Steelers Reinstate NT Alameda Ta’amu
 
Steelers Reinstate Alameda Ta’amu

Posted 3 hours ago

The Steelers reinstated nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu from the team’s Reserved/Suspended List, the team announced today.

Ta’amu was suspended for the Steelers’ last two contests (at Cincinnati and vs. Washington) and was inactive for the first five games of the season. Ta’amu was originally drafted by the Steelers in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Steelers did not have to make any additional changes to the active roster because the team was granted a roster exemption.

Great. He'll be ready to see the field by 2014, right on schedule.

Anyone tell me if they can send him off for a low pick, and if they might have their sights on someone else in the draft?

Isnt he scheduled for some jail time?

No way he gets out of this without some serious jail time. This was not your ordinary DUI stop. It was hit and run and trying to run over the cops. This guy won't see the light of day for quite some time.

i don't think he'll be locked up for too long, but he will most likely be going to jail

This guy does community service, pays a hefty fine, even does some re-hab, the league may issue more sanctions. He does not go to jail. This is the way it is in todays society.

Someone gets released from the roster later this week - Ed.B. thinks it will be Ta'amu and that he then goes to the practice squad

Someone might pick up Ta'amu, but since has has been a bust and now has lifestyle issues I guess he will make it safely to the practice squad where maybe he can get his head straight

I would have rather the Steelers made a statement and just flat-out released him. It would have been a good move to once again show the class of the organization thats been missing for awhile.

Ta'amu status unclear: Tomlin would not commit to saying DT Alameda Ta'amu's spot on the active roster is safe. But the team's ancillary moves indicate it probably is.

The Steelers cut DL Corbin Bryant from the practice squad Tuesday and signed OL John Malecki and TE Jamie McCoy to their practice squad. Both Malecki and McCoy have long histories with the Steelers over the last two seasons, bouncing on and off the practice squad and active roster.

Releasing a defensive lineman would seem to be a sign that Ta'amu has a future with the Steelers. Ta'amu was arrested on Oct. 14 and charged on 15 counts, including felonies, after an alcohol-fueled chase with police.

"We'll deal with that," Tomlin said about Ta'amu's roster status. "We have a couple days' exemption from the league. Obviously, we're going to do what's best for us professionally here in an effort to win this game this weekend. Obviously, he's still in play. Obviously, we've got a decision to make and we'll make it at the appropriate time.

Pressed further on Ta'amu, and how his future with the Steelers could be tied to legal proceedings or discipline from the NFL, Tomlin said: "They're really separate issues. He's got in-house issues. Of course, he as legal issues and he has National Football League issues. Such is life."
