Default Steelers Release Rookie WR

Steelers release rookie wide receiver
Monday, July 30, 2007

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers today released free agent rookie wide receiver Chris Jackson.

He was replaced on the roster by first-year wide receiver Gerran Walker, who signed with the Steelers Jan. 19 and was released July 19. Walker signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 as an undrafted free agent from Lehigh but was released before training camp started.

Jackson played at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., and signed with the Steelers in April as an undrafted rookie.

I think that leaves Fowler as the only UDFA WR...if I am not mistaken.

If Willie Reid comes on as strong as it seems he is...

the question then becomes, who is the best 4th receiver for the Steelers, Washington or Wison?

The answer, when looking at everything, including cap values, will be Nate Washington.

As much as I want Washington gone I think that LGA should have been cut by now.

EDIT: My bad. LGA stands for Little Girl Arms A.K.A. Wilson...
