PIT - WR Limas Sweed will need good preseason to make team
Source: ESPN.com - James Walker
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Limas Sweed likely will have to perform well during the preseason and show that he is recovered from the Achilles' tendon injury he suffered last offseason if he wants to make the final roster. Sweed appears to be the No. 6 wide receiver on the depth chart at this point.

Sweed has never lived up to his draft status, and this is certainly a make or break camp for him. Injuries and personal/emotional issues have held him back to this point. Coming back from an Achilles' injury has proven difficult for any player sustaining the injury and we don't feel Sweed will make enough of an impact to make the final roster.
I didn't like Sweed's chances BEFORE he blew out his Achilles' tendon.
Now that he has sustained such a severe injury, I really doubt he will
contribute jack boogers.
He won't make the team.
Wallace - all given.
2 spots left.
Randle El and Battle not given, for sure. Word is they are interested in
looking at signing Brian Finneran (ATL) if the lock out ends. I would like
that signing very much.
