Default The Yet to be Named Player is????

When David Decastro is placed on the new 8 week IR list Tuesday the Steelers will add one more player to their roster.

And this yet to be named player is???

CB Josh Victorian?

CB Terrence Frederick?

WR Derrick Willaims?

OL Trai Essex? (who's salary would not be guaranteed at this point)

WR Terrell Owens??????????(just kidding)

Being that Victorian and Frederick could be called up if they made the practice squad and with maybe WR David Gilreath being on the PS as well to be called up maybe Trai Essex isn't done yet. Your thoughts

I swear if it's Trai Essex, I am going to be pissed off!! Why all the suspense for an old spot duty lineman? Is there information they are waiting for to determine, lets say Adams or any other lineman's current injury status? I don't buy it. I think Trai is done.. for good.. Unless someone gets hurt during the season we may call him up like we did Starks last year.. I don't know, just my opinion.

I'd love to see a Frederick or Gilreath make the squad. I believe this was a very competitive year for many of the young guys and I hate that the NFL roster is so small. Then again, the smaller the roster, the more fun because one teams trash is another team's treasure.. Kind of like how Danny Woodhead previously from the Jets, or our own Stephan Logan whose with the Lions now.. They not only found a team, but an important role on them.

I'm guessing it's either Trai or a 5th WR.

They may be waiting to see if there is anyone on the waiver wire that might be better than Essex. They may not find a starter on waivers, but they can find someone better than Essex.

According to Steelers Depot, not so fast on putting DeCastro on the 8 week IR:

smart, by waiting until after the first game Essex's salary won't be guaranteed for the full year and they can cut him again without having to pay him any more $ after DeCastro is re-activated from IR.

Is there a deadline by when DeCastro has to be placed on the 8 week IR in order to be eligible to return?
