"Thursday morning, the Steelers told him he had been cut from the team and also that U.S. Marshals were looking for him."

It is not as if they cut Troy or Ben - it proves they will not put up with marginal players who are arrested for felonies.

The Trib article (http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/trib.../s_507172.html) indicates that police were aware of his possible involvement as far back as December.

Maybe they alerted the Steelers at that time, and they kept him on the team until the Las Vegas police told them they had enough evidence for an arrest, at which time the Steelers cut him.

Like Atlanta Dan, I do wonder how they would have reacted if it had been a big name starter, but to the credit of this organization, they historically have not drafted or signed potential starters without vetting them very carefully, and any player who comes to this team knows that negative character issues of any kind won't be tolerated.

Happily, the Steelers over the years haven't as a rule had to deal with criminal trouble from their starters.

most teams are afraid to drop a starter or star they know will land with another team, because they will not be compensated. (pac man, chris henry, mike vick for example)

however bam morris had all the star potential and possibly "jerome bettis" type of big production, in the world. and even though the steelers knew teams like the ravens or chiefs would snatch him up, they had no problem in swiftly letting him go. they couldve held on to him like the dolphins do rickey williams and hope of squeezing some team out of a 6th round pick, but instead they set a tone and image for steelers antd their players that is much more valuable than a late round pick.

Hey Tony....ya think that we may be able to talk Bam Morris into lending Sieglar the "Mustard Yellow" suit for his court hearing!!!

He was one of my favorite 70s Steelers, but Ernie (Arrowhead!) Holmes shot at a police helicopter in 1973 and was indicted for cocaine possession prior to the 1976 season but did not miss a down until his skills slipped and he was let go after the 1977 season. Add to that my belief Steve Courson was correct that Noll knew a lot of the OL ws on the juice and the Steelers are not exactly pristine when it comes to tolerance of improper behavior if the player produces.
