Parker is not on a team. Time to give him a call. Steelers need depth. Their running game is at the bottom of the league again. Parker knows the playbook. He could be an asset in the second half of the season. He'd be better than Moore.

Second, Reed should have been cut at season's end if he did not improve.

Parker isn't playing because there are 31 other teams that know what the Steelers knew last year ... he's done, washed up, on empty. His last handful of games with the Steelers showed a guy that no longer ran with heart. He was slow hitting holes and went down with hardly a touch from a defender. Not sure what anyone else was seeing out of those games, but it seemed very obvious to me that he wasn't the player he used to be.

But he wont take a pay cut, thats the problem, he wants 4 million to be a backup, and he can't catch for squat. Steelers have 4 running backs on the roster and are running out of room because of injuries. The circumstances make it very hard for him to be on the team at any time this season unless Moore and Redman break their legs.

Correction, Tone got canned for 2 reasons:
  1. Smoking too much doobage
  2. Bragging about smoking too much doobage on Twitter
