So I see the Steelers added 3. T Joe Long (Jake's Brother), G Justin Cheadle, WR Bert Reed. I like the Joe Long signing. Might be a guy who could be coached up and just need some time to grow. Also the Steelers don't mind if a college tackle becomes a NFL guard.:cool:
Hate losing the guys who already had a camp with the Steelers but maybe one of theses guys works out better.

Does anyone know who is on our practice squad now including the above three?

Here's the current Practice Squad list, Pappy...

Batch, Baron RB 5-10 210
Cheadle, Justin OG 6-2 290
Cromartie-Smith, Damon S 6-2 210
Long, Joe T 6-5 304
McFadden, Marshall LB 6-1 233
Moye, Derek WR 6-5 210
Reed, Bert WR 5-10 180
Ta'amu, Alameda NT 6-3 348
Victorian, Josh DB 5-10 190

I had Joe Long in my pre-draft mock as a 7th round pick. Glad to see that we were able to add Baron Batch to the P.S. as well.

I'm still happy that Ta'amu is on there as well; hopefully, he can put his indiscretions behind him and move forward.

PS guys are unlikely to be much help now or in the future. If we draft in the mid-teens like many of us think then we should be able to get a really good OT. I really thought we turned the corner on the OL but that has proven to be a false assumption. We still need more talent injected there.

Josh Victorian was waived and is no longer on our practice squad.

Good call. Those 9 guys were listed on the Steelers site earlier today, but the P.S. can only hold 8 guys. Their site has since been updated. Apparently Victorian was let go in order to bring in Reed. Long takes over the slot made available when Jacksonville claimed Clemons. Cheadle takes over the slot made available when we promoted Malecki.

I'm still going to hold out hope on this one. He appears to have the size and strength - if he can figure out the rest, he still has potential.

Steelers need this to be a hit, or they'll be forced into drafting a NT this year again.

Well, if that's the case then they'll probably draft a NT this year, because I don't think there's any way for them to know if he is hit or miss based on this year. Actually, because of the off field stuff he's closer to a miss in all likelihood.

Chadman's not disagreeing with you Pap.

Very disappointed to lose Ryan Lee...really thought he had potential.
