Well, Tomlin and Colbert have made their first waiver wire transaction, and it didn’t include Guy Wimper or an offensive tackle.
Instead they picked up Cody Wallace, who most recently played center and guard in Tampa Bay.
- To make room for Wallace, the Steelers cut reserve guard/center John Malecki.
Malecki is only listed has having played one game in 2012, although Steelers.com informs that he was added to their active roster in October of that year.
If he has dressed for less than 8 games, he is eligible to return to the Steelers practice squad. Which will be bad news for one of the 8 hopefuls who were added to that list on Sunday….
Further Steelers Roster Moves Expected
Tomlin and Colbert are not likely finished with the Steelers 2013 roster. Observer-Reporter journalist Dale Lolley expects the team to resign linebacker Marshall McFadden after they play Matt Spaeth on injured reserve.
And of course there is Max Starks. One must suppose that if the Steelers were going to resign Max Starks they would have done so already. But until that doesn't happen, rumors will persist.
