Default Steelers Likely to sign Joey Galloway

Steelers likely to sign receiver Galloway
Tuesday, December 22, 2009
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Steelers have brought in veteran wide receiver Joey Galloway and will likely sign him to their 53-man roster today as a replacement for Limas Sweed.

Galloway, 38, was at the Steelers offices this morning because Sweed, a No. 3 draft choice in 2008, has been placed on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he cannot play the rest of the season.

This isn't the first time the Steelers considered signing Galloway, the No. 1 draft choice of the Seattle Seahawks in 1995.

They brought him in during the offseason when they were looking for a veteran receiver to add to their roster. Galloway played two games this season with the New England Patriots, catching seven passes for 67 yards, before he was released on Oct. 20.

Cool beans. Don't really think he is going to see much action, but it's good to know that we'll have another reliable WR on the roster in case of injury.

Why not Shaun McDonald? I don't think he's on anyone's roster at the moment and If I recollect, Galloway was released by the Pats for the same reason we benched Sweed.

UPDATE: Yep, he's still available. In all actuality, I wish David Tyree was available; He's not "Johnny Hands" but could be a decent 4th/5th WR and he is a special teams ace.

Oh well.

Another thing to consider why the Steelers brought in a veteran is how bad is Ward's hammy. The way they were talking on the radio is that Ward is playing in some serious pain.

McDonald is a good WR. I would've rather seen him back than Galloway.
