    Wes Saunders

    Is Wes still a Steeler? I know he has a 4 game suspension but I haven't heard his name once in any camp reviews or anything.

    He played against the Bills. Against their third stringers.

    will he count toward the 53 man roster for the first 4 games? or, do they get an exemption?
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I'm pretty certain they get an exemption while suspended.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I still have some high hopes for him.

    He's still on the team, but he has been pretty invisible from what I've seen so far. I've read that he's far from a lock to make the roster. Not sure if they'll keep him on the suspended list or just release him at the end of camp. I'd suspect they keep him through the suspension, but if Paulson plays well in his absence, he may not have a spot when he gets back.

    I like his upside, but the reports I've seen mention that he's been inconsistent, and the coaches seem down on him.

    I think he has way more upside than Paulson, but he doesn't look like the same guy this preseason that he looked like last year.
