    Drummond maybe coming to Steelers

    They aren't hesitating looking at all options for the return game and improving Special Teams. I would hope they get a greater sense of urgency finding a punter versus who they got.

    Steelers work out return man


    New Steelers return man?

    The Steelers worked out a return man Thursday morning in anticipating of placing punter Dan Sepulveda on injured reserve.

    The Steelers this morning worked out wide receiver Eddie Drummond, whose main job with the club would be as a return man.
    Drummond, 28, was born in Pittsburgh and played collegiately at Penn State. He was drafted in 2002 by the Detroit Lions and spent five seasons with the team. Last year, Drummond played for the Kansas City Chiefs and averaged 21.2 yards per kickoff return and 6.9 yards per punt return.

    For his career, Drummond has returned 250 kickoffs for a 23.2 average and two touchdowns, and 140 punts for a 9.1 average and four touchdowns. He's caught four career passes for seven yards.

    Bloom would be cut on the same day....

    it would also mean 6 WRs kept, IMO.

    I'm not really supportive of someone who does nothing other than return kicks. Too much like Rossum last year.

    I was actually pleased with Rossum... most of the other guys get back there and I thought, "OMG, will he muff it?" or "will he fumble it?"

    Never had that worry with Rossum. He was sure handed and made the right decision nearly all the time. If you're unsure about whether to field a punt.... DON'T.

    Even his play on the goal line that had many dumbfounded, I thought was BRILLIANT, both at the time (because unlike many, I knew the rule) and even in hindsight.

    This is good news from a strategic perspective.

    The STeelers have never won a Super Bowl without a Penn Stater on their roster.

    So .. either Drummond or Paxson has to make the roster for us to win it all this year.

    Plain and simple.

    I don't think they'll release Bloom because Sep going on IR opens up a roster spot. They released Marion prior to putting Sep on IR
