Just heard on the radio that he was waived.
They'll stick him back on the practice squad. Called up Gilreath for tonight.
Right, I was factoring in the fact that I don't believe anyone will touch him. who knows though.
I hope no one touches him, although McClendon came out of nowhere so he's not as vital to the future operation. Either way I'd hate to see him end up on a different team until we know whether or not he's worth anything on the field.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with troubled rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and added wide receiver David Gilreath to the 53-man roster.
The NFL season isn't slowing down and we have all the best images from Week 10.
Ta'amu was chosen by the Steelers in the fourth round of the NFL draft but has yet to play in a game. He was suspended two weeks without pay last month following a run-in with police in the city's South Side neighborhood that resulted in more than a dozen charges, including multiple felonies.
Ta'amu was reinstated on Oct. 30 but remained on the inactive list. He pleaded not guilty to all charges during a court date last week and apologized for his actions while expressing hope he would remain with the team.
Gilreath spent the first nine weeks of the season on the practice squad
