    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).

    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!

    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.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    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.
