Default If Redman can't play special teams, he won't be on the 53-man roster

http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot.com/

At his press conference Thursday, Mike Tomlin pretty much said what I've been stating about Issac Redman since last week - if he can't play special teams, he won't be on the 53-man roster or the red zone back.

It looks like Redman is heading to the practice squad.

Stefan Logan will get another good look as the return man against Buffalo Saturday, but Mewelde Moore will return some punts and rookie Mike Wallace will return kicks in the first half.

Starters Willie Parker (hamstring), Santonio Holmes (back) and placekicker Jeff Reed (ankle) may be held out of Saturday's game.

None of the injuries are serious.

According to the NFL Network, Tampa Bay has put any of its three veteran quarterbacks - including Byron Leftwich - on the trade market.

Don't be surprised to see the Steelers linked to Leftwich. Even though Charlie Batch is back and healthy, Leftwich is a better backup option for the Steelers.

If he can be attained for a low draft pick, it would be worth considering.

I wonder if the Steelers would make a play for Lefty?

Let em sit - please.

We need all those guys healthy for the real games.


Sorry Charlie - Bring back Lefty!

Heresy! Blasphemy! That's our future starting Hall Of Fame Running Back, Mister!

Actually, I think this pretty much marks the "return to reality" portion of preseason...thank Christ, just in time, too!

The numbers crunch at RB begins.

Redmond should be pretty safe on the practice squad

Don't start with this "Trade for Leftwich" BS. Our quarterback situation is absolutely fine.

If we traded Batch for Leftwich straght-up, that'd be an upgrade.

Not that I think we actually would.

Or that Tampa would, for that matter.
