cut him

Steelers Offensive Linemen Arrested

(KDKA) PITTSBURGH After a solid first week of practice, Steelers training camp took a turn for the worse early Sunday morning.

Police arrested Steelers offensive lineman Barrett Brooks on the South Side on charges of eluding and fleeing the police.

Brooks was allegedly driving erratically at around 2:30 a.m. on the 1700-block of Carson Street, running multiple stop signs.

Brooks has a minor incident in which he laid his motorcycle down. He then allegedly tried to get back on the motorcycle and leave the scene when he was arrested.

He was tested for driving under the influence. Police say Brooks was under the legal limit.



Good bye Barrett. He stinks anyways. Should be first cut of camp.

This is great news for the Steelers! Before this incident, Brooks was most likely going to be cut. Now that he's in trouble with the law, his stock has risen. Look for the Bengals to offer a 3rd round pick for him.

I just don't get why these guys would risk blowing such an opportunity when it's obviously taken work and commitment to get that far. Doesn't he know that these aren't the Bengals that he's dealing with???

Even assuming any Steeler still would be riding a motorcycle after Ben's accident, the fact that Brooks did that while not wearing a helmet and in post-midnight Saturday night traffic (where meeting a drunk or at least impaired driver on the road is exponentially more likely to happen) indicates he should be cut on grounds of general stupidity.

Unless the Steelers need the body for practice fodder, Brooks should be cut this afternoon to send a message this type of conduct needs to end - the Super Bowl celebration is over and it is time to get down to business.
