Got to say I'm surprised they may be considering keeping him and cut ties with Wesleye Saunders. Maybe this is just a step required before releasing him or an indication how desperate we are at NT.

Steelers Reinstate Alameda Ta’amu

Posted 13 minutes ago

The Steelers reinstated nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu from the team’s Reserved/Suspended List, the team announced today.

Ta’amu was suspended for the Steelers’ last two contests (at Cincinnati and vs. Washington) and was inactive for the first five games of the season. Ta’amu was originally drafted by the Steelers in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Steelers did not have to make any additional changes to the active roster because the team was granted a roster exemption.
