The Steelers today added Tuff Harris, a DB that was cut by the Titans, to fill out their 8 for their practice squad. Harris played in six games for the Titans last season.

The Steelers this morning filled out their practice squad of eight players when they signed defensive back Tuff Harris, 26.

Harris was cut by the Tennessee Titans, where he played six games last season. He played one game for the Miami Dolphins in 2007. He played college ball at Montana.

I also saw that Seattle signed Roy Lewis. That sucks. I liked Lewis.

Interesting picking a former Titan up just 3 days before we play them. I wonder if he's being grilled? :D

The Patriots were pretty notorious in picking up at least one of our ex players before we played them. Probably helped deciphering hand signals so they could show Ernie Adams.

I saw RB Mike Hart was released by the Colts. Anyone think he could bring anythign to the table or at least would be worth signing to the PS over someone else we put on there? NT Terrance Taylor was also released. I thought he would have been an interesting pick.

I use to like Michigan (before this Rodrigez crap, flag football offense came to town) and one thing in football i've been pretty solid on over the years is the RB position.

And Mike Hart is not and will not be a good NFL RB. I thought that coming out of college and still think that today.

I think right now, RB and WR is pretty well stacked on this team.

If anything we need to address the O-Line

The Pats aren't the only ones that do that kind of stuff. We've done it before as well.. anyone remember Patrick Cobb?

Terrence Taylor seemed like a solid NT candidate prior to the draft. If the Colts don't add him to their practice squad, I wouldn't mind adding him to ours (over someone like Justin Vincent or Dezmond Sherrod).

No.
I thought the same like you prior to the draft (about Taylor). But if the Colts (who are absolutely starved for interior DL) don't want him, chances are that he just isn't that good.

Wow! another DB! I wonder what the FO is thinking here? I would think OL would be a focus for the PS. I suppose they know that good DBs get very pricey at contract time and it may be much more cost-effective to constantly groom young guys to replace FAs. Plus wasn't Tomlin a DB coach at one time? So that may also explain the obsession.......
