Steelers re-sign Ta'amu to practice squad
Wednesday, November 14, 2012
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Steelers have re-signed rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and placed him on the practice squad.
Ta'amu was released from the 53-man roster last week when the Steelers promoted wide receiver David Gilreath from the practice squad because of the injury to wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Ta'amu, though, was not claimed on waivers by another team and eligible to re-sign with the Steelers.
Ta'amu faces a number of felony and misdemeanor charges for a confrontation with Pittsburgh police on the South Side in which he is accused of fighting with officers while drunk and trying to escape.
Here's a second chance, Alameda...
Don't F up again...
Unless there's another thread that I haven't seen I apologize if I'm asking something that, has already been posted.
I understand the Steelers let Alamea Ta'Amu go from the team/practice squad last week. Have they re-signed him or has anyone signed him at this point ?
Also, is it correct in saying, " he was a bust " ?
thanks ruthless. despite the troubles he has upon his shoulders, i wonder if he will continue to be with the steelers ? i guess what i am asking, is this guy going to be the real deal for us some day ?
It was a waste to use a roster spot on him since LeBeau won't play him as a rookie anyway. They might as well have just kept him on the practice squad for the season.
