    Saunders released

    Saunders released. It is on Steelers.com

    Very disappointed with this move. I wish we would have kept him instead of Pope who is below average at blocking and receiving (ask any Chiefs fan is you don't think we have enough evidence). This guy had second round athleticism, and it seemed like he'd be a good citizen since he arrive (even given his checkered past and suspension for ADD meds not cleared with the league).
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania

    I think this will work out for the Colts better than us. Saunders was the type of big body TE who could run and catch that we need to really pressure teams. Paulson just doesn't have the size and Pope is seriously lacking.

    Exactly. Saunders had great size, good athleticism, and strength for the passing game/breaking tackles. He was also coming along as a blocker. Pope is awful. Even if he knew the offense better, he can't execute it consistently. Especially with Paulson earning playing time, we could afford to let Pope go.

    Doubt the Colts would have signed Pope if we released him.

    not a great landing spot.

    didn't they just draft 2 TEs?

    that's all well and good.

    but he will still be buried behind the 1st two TEs taken in last years draft.

    I wonder if he will have a longer tenure with the Colts than Trai Essex.

    I think Tony Hills is on the Colts this year. Between Whiz and BA the players we get rid of seem to have places to go.
