Steez Release Simmons
The Post Gazette reports that the Steelers have released Guard Kendall Simmons. This is great news to Steelers fans everywhere. This will take the outrageous contract extension he got off our cap. The Steelers overpaid him way too much and this will free up some money to maybe make a little splash in free agency or maybe a last ditch effort at one of our unrestricted free agents (hmmm McFeezy or Nate). Simmons underachieved greatly and it was a blessing that he tore his Achilles in week 4. Stapleton came in and performed to the same ability Simmons did and this opened the door for his release. I feel like Alan Faneca is smiling in New York somewhere.
