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 recorded one interception and one pass defensed in the 21 times he has been targeted so far this season and has allowed just one touchdown. He effectively won the battle over the aforementioned Wallace, his childhood friend and former teammate, a few weeks ago. James Harrison - Harrison has started the games for the Cincinnati Bengals but has yet to record a sack. He played all of 13 snaps Sunday in the win over the New England Patriots and has recorded six total tackles this season. Willie Colon - Colon has already racked up five penalties in his first four games with the New York Jets at right guard and has straggled in the run blocking department. He has yet to allow a sack, however, as the Jets prepare to play their fifth game Monday night. Ryan Mundy - Mundy has started the first five games for the winless New York Giants this season. While he currently leads the team in total tackles, he has also allowed three touchdowns while in coverage. Will Allen - Allen started the first two games of the season for the Dallas Cowboys, but has since played only 38 plays on defense. As of right now, he appears to be nothing more than a special teams contributor. Doug Legursky - Legursky has fought back from a knee injury suffered during the preseason but has played all of one snap on offense for the Buffalo Bills and that came Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns. Max Starks - Starks is currently unemployed after spending a short time with the St. Louis Rams following his release from the San Diego Chargers prior to the start of the regular season. He played all of eight snaps with the Rams in the two games he was on their roster. Checking In On The Players The Steelers Parted Ways With This Past Offseason is a post from: Steelers Depot
