PITTSBURGH - The Steelers made their final roster cuts on Sunday, releasing six players and placing one on injured reserve.

Among those who were released were veteran running back Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala and cornerback Hank Poteat. First-year wide receiver Khori Ivy was also let go, as were rookie running back Dante Brown, defensive tackle David Upchurch and fullback J.T. Wall.

Defensive end Brett Keisel was placed on injured reserve after having season-ending shoulder surgery on Sunday.

The guy from the Sporting News was on the radio talking about how deep Pittsburg is at the RB position. He claimed that they had 6 NFL RB\'s. These were two of the names he mentioned.

Just heard that the Saints will announce on Moday that they will sign Robert Edwards from Miami.

And ESPN says the Saints have been looking at Patrick Pass of the Pats. Who knows?

Could be they plan to sign more than 1 back.
I see them re-signing Carter after 3m today and signing either Edwards (CBS RUMOR) or Pass or Fu\'amatu.
Fu would be a decent goal line back, but he is constantly injured.
Edwards would be absolutely ideal to team with Carter.
From all I\'ve read he\'s back to 100%.
This guy was a major all-pro stud before his knee literally exploded.
His rehab effort shows THIS GUY IS DEFINITELY NOT A QUITTER
Isn\'t that kinda the attitude we need?
Edwards could easily handle 8-10 carries per game and fill in well if Deuce goes down for a few games.
Saints RB\"s
1.Deuce McAllister
2.Robert Edwards
3.KiJana Carter

Sounds a tad bit better than Keaton-Fenderson doesn\'t it?

Whether we agree or disagree; its all for Him.
