Even when he did pass the 30, the return would be called back by a penalty more often than not. No return man would be effective with the Steelers' special teams unit. Rainey also can't run between the tackles because of his lack of size, and the Steelers never really took advantage of chances to line him up as a wide receiver or run pitch plays with Rainey. In the end, I have to agree that Rainey really didn't bring much to the table for the Steelers, and cutting him really doesn't have a negative impact on the Steelers.
