    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 teams practice squad. McFadden will wear No. 40.


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


    To make room for McFadden on the active roster, the Steelers placed linebacker Chris Carter on the teams 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 teams practice squad. McCoy will wear No. 80.

    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    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
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    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.
