Default Practice Squad

Steelers Sign Eight to Practice Squad
The Steelers signed eight first or second-year players to their practice squad today. All eight players were with the team during this summerís training camp, but were released during final roster cuts.

The players added to the Steelers practice squad include: TE Eugene Bright, OG Dorian Brooks, S DaíMon Cromartie-Smith, WR Tyler Grisham, OT Kyle Jolly, DT Steve McLendon, FB Frank Summers and DE Doug Worthington.

Clubs were able to sign up to eight players to their practice squad beginning at noon on Sunday, Sept. 5. Players are eligible for an NFL practice squad position if they have less than a cumulative eight games of NFL experience on a 53-man active roster. Players may only be eligible for a single teamís practice squad for up to three seasons.


Where's Joe Burnett? Heard that Logan, Bailey, Frazier and Urbik found other gigs.

It took them that long just to keep all our own players? yawn

I guess people should be doing back-flips that we kept a FB.

Worthington over Sonny Harris, no big surprises anywhere.


oh well, our roster was set

This was interesting ... seems Burnett just fell off the face of the Steelers planet. Wonder what happened? Was this just a case of simply being beat by the competition or was there more to it here?

Also surprised by the dumping of Sonny Harris. Thought we had a good opinion on that young talent. Again, seems like the talent was stacked against him.

Yeah, Burnett's wherabouts is a mystery. I still think we should have kept him over Madison. Good to see Tyler is still with us!!

Burnett dressed a lot last year so he probably isn't eligible for the practice squad.

I guess still unemployed, but I'd imagine someone will give him a shot within the next few days/weeks.

I was kind of hoping we would carry Justin Thorton too. It would have been unusual to have two safties on the PS but I thought he looked pretty good this preseason.

Wow...really? maybe Worthington asked to be released. He was getting rave reviews.
