The Pittsburgh Steelers waived wide receiver David Gilreath on Monday to make room on the roster for offensive lineman John Malecki, who was promoted from the practice squad. On Tuesday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed Gilreath off waivers and signed him to their 53 man roster.
The Steelers were likely hoping that Gilreath would clear waivers so that he could be signed back to their practice squad today. The team currently has two spots open on the practice squad as wide receiver Toney Clemons was signed away by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday.

Assuming the Pittsburgh Steelers don't turn the ball over 8 times this coming Sunday, they still will have a tough chore in beating the Baltimore Ravens should quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not play. Hell, even if Roethlisberger does play it will be a tough chore, as it always is.

Many people figured that going into the 2012 NFL season, it could be the final year we see Rashard Mendenhall in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform. It had little to do with the fact that he was coming off of a major knee injury from the end of last season, but the team made little effort to lock him up to a long term deal even before the injury.

A busy day for the Pittsburgh Steelers: Roethlisberger update, Wallace & Mendenhall on their demotions; Troy Polamalu back on the field.
The Steelers have had it rough the last couple of weeks, dropping two straight while the Cincinnati Bengals have closed the gap in the wildcard race. Ben Roethlisberger's status is still up in the air for this weekend's game against the Ravens, but even with another loss, the Steelers aren't in terrible shape in the playoff picture.
