Steelers Release Brandon Lindsey
Steelers waived Brandon Lindsey of Pitt and signed former LSU lineback Ryan Baker.
Baker, at 5'11", 232 pounds, is considered a long shot to make the team since the Steelers are deep in linebackers that includes Sean Spence from Miami.
RB's Batch and Rainey In Competition
It's no secret that the backfield of the Steelers is facing some challenges with Mendenhall rehabing a torn ACL he suffered last January. This leaves Baron Batch and Chris Rainey competing in the backfield.
Both have an excellent chance of making the roster considering their speed and good hands.
Rainey appears to have a slight advantage due largely to his kick-return ability. On the other hand, offensive coordinator, Tod Haley, likes what he sees in Batch. Batch lacks Rainey's speed, but he's bigger and Tomlin likes his overall attitude to play the game.
