Someone else is going to sign him now, and he'll wind up being the next Troy Edwards. Oh, whoa is us...

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.

How many chances can you give someone? The Steelers made the right move. Maybe a change of scenery is what he needs, I wish Sweed all the luck in the world.

same, unless he's playing for baltimore, cleveland, or new england, then I'll hope he falls off a bridge

Nobody has had a chance to see Sweed in a gametime scenario since December '09. I'm surprised that they didn't even give him a chance to play in a preseason game.
