Steelers release Blount

Finally.

The Pittsburgh Steelers cut LeGarrette Blount Tuesday.

The move comes after he left the field before the end of Monday's win against the Titans.

I guess he was upset with the lack of playing time.

Poor, poor Blount.

He was lucky to stick with the Steelers that long.

They should have cut him after he a running back Le'Veon Bell were busted with pot during the summer.

But the Steelers kept Blount anyway.

My guess is they wanted some depth at running back.

If Blount had been a fourth-string lineman, he would have been cut back then.

Instead, Monday was his last game in a Steelers uniform.

The Steelers will have a bye week to sort out their running back picture behind Bell, who rushed for 204 yards.

Maybe Ben Tate?

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
