Wow keep Pope for maybe his last year in the league over a guy who could be playing for the next 10 years? Heath Miller isn't getting any younger either.

Don't see the logic unless Saunders ate too much Colonel Saunders over his suspension and showed up out of shape.

I wonder wtf everyone else was thinking about this guy...
Agreed, people's infatuation with Saunders echoes the sentiment that Thad Gibson was the next Greg loyd or jerrod Johnson was our qb of the future

Former Steelers TE Weslye Saunders Signs With Indianapolis Colts

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 by Dave Bryan

The Pittsburgh Steelers released tight end Weslye Saunders on Friday and on Tuesday he signed with the Indianapolis Colts.

Saunders is now reunited with former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who is serving as the Colts interim head coach.

Saunders posted the below picture of him signing his contract on his Twitter account.

@Wes_Saunders88
Tough times don't last...tough people do. So glad to be a part of the Indianapolis Colts! Thanks for the sup instagr.am/p/Q3FfystDr-/
16 Oct 12

Saunders was forced to miss the Steelers first four games of the season after he was suspended back in February for testing positive for a banned substance.

Head coach Mike Tomlin was asked about the release of Saunders on Tuesday and he would only say the decision to release the former undrafted tight end was a personnel based one.

It looks like the Indianapolis Colts are becoming the Pittsburgh Steelers Midwest.

WTF does Sweed have to do with the TE position?

We just released a young guy for a washed up stiff, are you Pope's designated ball licker?
