Sweed had become a running joke once he faked an injury after dropping a sure TD pass in the Ravens AFC championship game, but Gerry Dulac of the P-G has a story that portrays Sweed as a pretty sad case

Sweed was a good guy

He’s a good kid and a hard worker, but he could never get past the personal demons that caused him to be so hard on himself, caused him to try so hard that he couldn’t even execute the simplest task of his trade – catch the ball....

The Steelers held on to him all these years for the same reason they drafted him – thinking that one day all that physical talent will start to bloom. But, he had no chance to make the team this year. In the end, he had become a loner, something of a lost soul who didn't seem to fraternize with his teammates.
