Default Steelers Minor signing and release.

Quote:
The Steelers made a roster move today, releasing wide receiver Micah Rucker from the practice squad and signing wide receiver Martin Nance to the practice squad.

Nance, 6-foot-3 and 213 pounds, was a college teammate of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at Miami, Ohio.

Nance signed with Buffalo as a free agent-rookie out of Miami in 2006, was released and wound up with the Minnesota Vikings.

He's played one career game in the NFL, with Minnesota in 2006, and has four receptions for 33 yards.

I would have loved to see Rucker stick around to make it. The kid is strong emotionally and i bet he will be up someday. On Nance's part he was Ben's favorite target in college.

I have to admit that i love the Martin Nance addition,altough i would have love to keep Rucker around,they should have let Justin Vincent go instead of Rucker,we dont need Vincent with Mendenhall and Russell as youngster and Parker not really old...and not to forget Dookie and Haynes that could comeback anytime we need them.

we could bring back duce too.

seriously, why would we want to bring back haynes (or najeh)?

he was one of my favorites (so was the unemployed kendrell bell, who has less of a chance of making a squad as keryon fox) but its pretty clear that his career in the nfl is done.

i dont want to bring em back i was just saying it was useless to carry a RB on the PS ,id rather have 2 WR than another RB cause we already have 2 young back on our active roster and 2 that could come in if we have injuries so no need to carry another back on the PS that was just my point.But maybe they didnt like Micah Rucker that much after all ...who knows

btw i was a kendrell bell fan too ;) but i never liked John Kuhn

and what's happening to Ryan Mundy ? Where is he now ?

I know. It was almost as annoying as the Owen Schmidtt lovefest this past draft season, and the Steve Slaton one, the Brandon Browner one, the Vincent Jackson one, the Maurice Stovall one, the Chad Jackson one.....etc.
