Antwaan Randle El Released By Steelers

Behind The Steel Curtain has the latest news on the Steelers’ maneuverings in NFL Free Agency. Not only has the team cut offensive lineman Max Starks, saving the team money against the cap, but they’ve also released wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, thus ending his second stint with the team. With the emergence of rookie wideouts Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown last year, Randle El really didn’t serve much of a pupose anymore. The Steelers have also recently been connected to wideout Plaxico Burress, and if Burress were to sign, that would complicate the depth chart even further.

Randle El had 253 yards receiving in 2010. He also returned 14 punts, fumbling twice in the process.

Unsurprisingly, in the wake of the Starks release, the Steelers are pursuing free agent Willie Colon, hoping to get him to re-sign so that they can stabilize an offensive line that is neither particularly great nor particularly deep.
