    Chris Carter on I.R./Marshall McFadden now on Active Roster/Jamie McCoy back on P.S.

    Steelers Make Transactions
    Posted 14 minutes ago

    The Steelers made a number of roster moves today that included promoting linebacker Marshall McFadden to the active roster from the teamís practice squad. McFadden will wear No. 40.


    McFadden spent the first 10 weeks of the 2012 season on the teamís practice squad. He originally was signed to the teamís offseason roster on January 18, 2012.


    To make room for McFadden on the active roster, the Steelers placed linebacker Chris Carter on the teamís Reserve/Injured List with an abdominal injury. Carter saw action in eight games this season, making his first three career starts.


    The Steelers also signed tight end Jamie McCoy to the teamís practice squad. McCoy will wear No. 80.

    It's looking more and more like OLB is becoming a high draft need next year as well.

    Coin flip between OLB, ILB and Safety. Can you have a three sided coin??????

    Maybe he shouldn't be in the wings. Doesn't he have more QB pressures and sacks than Harrison? Was Harrison even on the field against the Chiefs? Can't recall hearing his name called once during the game.

    Can anyone tell me what the heck they see in McCoy that they keep him around? Really hard for me to believe he is the best talent on the street available with PS eligiability.

    well, then we have our future starting OLBs in place with Woodley and Worilds and Chris Carter as the main backup.

    in that case, why would we waste a high draft choice on an OLB when we have so many other pressing needs at ILB, S, WR etc. that need to also be filled?

    Harrison was a non factor in the game against the Chiefs
    Hope I'm wrong, but he's got nothing left to give

    Unfortunately I don't think you are wrong. I posted a couple of weeks ago that there is no way his knee is going to get right practicing and playing on it every week. He just doesn't look like he can generate any power with his legs compared to what was normal for him.

    Bottomline is he won't be playing here next year for his full salary. Keep him for the vet minimum or move on.

    Harrison looks cooked. The Chiefs were not the first team to run right at Woodley and wont be the last. We need another stud OLB to replace Harrison, cuz' I think you guys are right in that he will be a salary cap cut next year.
