The Perspective Of An Average Steelers Fan: Former Steelers Around The League

I took a quick look at the rosters from around the NFL and found 24 former Pittsburgh Steelers players on rosters. Three are tucked away on practice squads and at least four more are on injured reserve for different teams. Sean Spence was just released by the Indianapolis Colts so we will see if anyone picks him up.

The New York Jets are the only team with more than two former Steelers on their active roster unless I missed somebody. You could almost form a team but I doubt they would win many games. Take a look at the table; which of these players, if any, would you want on the Steelers current roster? Also, who would you replace?

These guys were all  Runnin’ Down a Dream wearing the Black & Gold at one time or another. Thanks to Jaybird & Darth Blount 47 for their suggestion; we lost a great one in Tom Petty. He lived his life and now he’s gone but not without a legacy. Whenever folks are trying to drag you down Pittsburgh Steelers fans; remember Tom Petty’s words; “I Won’t Back Down.”
