Steelers Drop Limas Sweed, Draft Bust

The Steelers have waived wide receiver Limas Sweed, the Post-Gazette reports. Sweed was a second-round draft pick and possessed the kind of size that people love in a wide receiver, but he didn’t do much of anything with it, catching only seven balls in his career and frustrating fans with drops. There were a handful of fans who still held out hope for his potential, but I don’t think anyone is going to be too upset to see him gone.

In related moves, the Steelers have dropped tight end Eugene Bright and added two defensive backs – cornerback Kevin Dockery (who played in 10 games for the St. Louis Rams last year and four seasons for the New York Giants before that) and safety Macho Harris (who played for the Washington Redskins last year and the Philadelphia Eagles before that). The Steelers have recently lost several defensive backs, including top corner Ike Taylor, to injury.
