    Steelers release Gary Russell

    [url="http://news.steelers.com/article/104626/"]http://news.steelers.com/article/104626/[/url]

    The Steelers also announced they have released veteran running back Gary Russell, who was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2007 NFL Draft. In his two seasons with the Steelers, he played in 15 regular-season games and four postseason contests.

    Didn't see that coming.....

    Why Russell and not Carey Davis?

    I understand Russell is a HB and Davis a FB. Still, Davis seems a lot less "needed" than Russell.

    Surprising. Especially doing so before the draft.

    He must have been out of shape at one of the offseason activities, or done something to merit this. I'd imagine more info about this will be brought to light.

    I wonder if this means we are eyeing a RB in the draft.

    Not really a big deal because we never used Russell to the fullest extent possible. It is surprising that a marginal player like Carey Davis still finds a way to hang around.

    Wow, I didnt' see this coming either. Too bad for Russell, there may be more to it though, he's always seemed to play pretty well.

    Of course the back field is pretty crowded. I'll bet Russell is on Arizona's roster in 3...........2............1.........

    I am really shocked.

    This has to be a cap move, but why, oh why couldn't it have been Carey Davis.

    It has to be out of shape or some kind of trouble. Most likely fairwell for good.

    I agree. As Paul Harvey said "We haven't heard the rest of the story."
