    Potentially good player, but with Gabbert throwing to him, guess we'll never know..

    Former roster or practice squad members Clemons (Jaguars), offensive lineman Ryan Lee (Saints) and Gilreath (Buccaneers) were claimed this week.[from a Trib article]

    Busy week for the PS.

    Are those things mandated by the league? Is a team required to have one? I mean what's the difference where any of these players is sleeping. You already have a line on them and know what they can do. Whats the difference if they are in Seattle or Houston or anywhere. If you need one simply claim them. Let someone else pay them in the meanwhile.

    I mean, all 3 of those players are promising. Gilreath already was helpful to the team. But, now they might just help some other team and up to now all at TS [the steelers] expense. There is no way at this time TS could block any of these raids? by bringing any of these players up to the 53. So, if they are really any good they will now help someone else. Me never could figure out why they have those things.

    I'm especially sorry to see Ryan Lee go...I thought he showed some good potential. Legursky hasn't been that great at guard, and who knows when one of the others will go down with injury--seems to be a too-regular occurrence.

    I liked Ryan Lee in the preseason more than I liked Kelvin Beachum and John Malecki. Now we have Beachum and Malecki on our 53 man roster (with Beachum projected to start at RT! I don't know why they don't just slide Foster over to RT and insert DeCastro at RG in order to get our best 5 healthy OL out there), and we lost Lee to the Saints.

    when a team claims a player off another team's practice squad they must carry them on their 53 man roster, thus we wouldn't be able to claim them right back.

    Correct, it also allows them to carry that player into the offseason and bring them to camp.

    Hence why I wouldn't be surprised to see some team sign Ta'amu to the 53 man roster on the last week of the season to bring him onto their team for the offseason.

    if you had told me that we just had 3 players players from our practice squad signed by other teams I would have certainly thought that Ta'amu would have been one of them.
