  Steelers | Sweed could be released    Tue Mar 9, 12:15 PM

ESPN.com reports the Pittsburgh Steelers could release WR Limas Sweed after the team signed WRs Arnaz Battle and Antwaan Randle El.

Footballguys view: Sweed has never lived up to the hype after being a second-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He has good size, but is not the most sudden receiver and has inconsistent hands. Sweed also has some off field concerns that led to him being placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury/Illness List in December of 2009.
