Redman Released from Practice Squad, Vincent/McLendon Return

Isaac Redman’s fairy tail with the Steelers is over, for the time being at least, as the Steelers released him from the practice squad last week. Red Zone Redman was a preseason sensation who repeatedly scored in a variety of goal-line situations both at St. Vincent’s and in preseason games.

The team however waived Redman to make room for running back Justin Vincent. The Steelers also added defensive lineman Steve McLendon to their practice squad.

There’s been a lot of shuffling at the bottom of the roster and on the practice squad with a turnover on special teams and injuries to quarterbacks. Nonetheless, the Steelers motives regarding Redman are a little puzzling, as they opted to release Vincent a few weeks ago when they needed to create space.
