Gilreath went to the active roster. The move is listed on the Steelers home page, along with the release.

its the right move to make. We shouldn't sign him back either. This was beyond a DUI, it was a very serious crime. The Steelers need to acknowledge and back the fact that they run an organization that is class. We don't "need" him.
It would have been nice if he had worked out, though. i had high hopes.

Definitely a Steeler move. Let the other teams have the social misfits.

If they actually wanted to keep him, they'd release someone else to sign Gilreath. He could easily get picked up by another team.. Belichick is almost sure to put a claim in for him.

Just saw Labriola posted that we will resign T'amau to the practice squad if he clears waivers. Even given his (considerable) legal issues, it will be a shame to see him go after he was widely viewed as a big steal for us in the 4th round. If he is gone, he blew a golden opportunity to be a part of the Steelers defense for a long time.

It will be interesting to see what kind of impact Gilreath makes. I was impressed by what I saw of him during the preseason, and frankly I was a little surprised when we cut him in favor of keeping five running backs on the active roster.

went unclaimed and is now a FA. Steelers still on the hook for his small guaranteed signing bonus. He's going to see jail time no doubt, so he's probably too much trouble even for the PS.

The Steelers wouldn't have bothered to reinstate him from his suspension to begin with if it was too much trouble. The only reason he was released was because they needed a receiver. Otherwise he'd still be on the 53-man roster right now. And Tomlin said today that it was purely a personnel move and didn't rule out bringing him back.

my thoughts exactly. I think when he gets signed back that there will be more unrest than after a Bruce Arians bubble screen playcall.
