Found October 07, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
The Pittsburgh Steelers decided to let several of their unrestricted free agents walk this past offseason and they parted ways with a few other veterans under contract in addition. Here is a quick look at how their former players have done so far this season as week five comes to a close Monday night. Rashard Mendenhall - In five games with the Arizona Cardinals, Mendenhall has 69 carries for 219 yards to go along with two touchdowns and two fumbles. Following the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, head coach Bruce Arians openly suggested that his running back needs to prepare better during the week to be ready for games. Mike Wallace - Wallace has 22 catches for 281 yards and one touchdown with the Miami Dolphins so far this season, but he has to have at least five drops right now through five games. He does, however, have two 100-yard games to his credit. Keenan Lewis - Lewis, as expected, has started all five games so far this season for the undefeated New Orleans Saints. He has ...
