Default Steelers sign Redman to practice squad - others

Steelers sign Redman to practice squad

Sunday, September 06, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Rookie running back Isaac Redman cleared waivers and the Steelers signed him this afternoon to their eight-man practice squad.

Redman was the surprise hit of the preseason. He led the Steelers in scoring with three rushing touchdowns and also with 145 yards rushing. In nine chances over two live goal-line drills in training camp practices, he scored seven times.

He quickly picked up the nickname "Redzone" Redman but when the Steelers kept just four running backs, down one from last season, Redman was released on Saturday.

No one else claimed him and he joined seven others on their practice squad.
Among others on their practice squad are center A.Q. Shipley, defensive end Sonny Harris -- both draft picks this year -- rookie defensive tackle Steve McLendon, running back Justin Vincent, tight end Dezmond Sherrod and rookie wide receiver Tyler Grisham.

------------------------

Everybody can relax.

It seems as though the Tomlin et alia have something in the wings since we still have an open spot on the practice squad.

Great news. Of course, Belicheat can still come in and scoop up one of our players (Harris, with Seymore traded?) but if you sign a player off another team's PS, now you have to put them on your active roster.

OK - Shipley, Harris, McLendon, Vincent, Sherrod, Grisham and Redman. That's 7. Who's #8 on the PS?

I am quite relieved about Redman. I had a feeling someone was going to snap him up.
