Report: Steelers May Bring Back LB Stevenson Sylvester

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

The roster moves are not done for the Steelers, as Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette reports the team is looking at bringing back LB Stevenson Sylvester.

Sylvester was dumped after missing preseason games one and two with an ankle injury that happened in the preseason.

He was the clubs 5th round pick in the 2010 draft.

Sylvester would be able to step right in and play for LB Larry Foote, who is done for the season after tearing his bicep in Sunday’s loss to the Titans.

    I would rather have Vince play at ILB to be honest. I have seen enough of Sylvester. Vince will hit you and is a play maker…which is why he rose up the charts quickly and made the 53.

    Timmons took over the defensive play calling last week and the already 3-4 wise Williams can focus on tackling and covering.

    His upside is tremendous and the oft injured Sylvester isn’t a better player. To me its like the Jarvis/Worilds situation. Yes he is a rookie but when Jarvis is on there, he makes things happen. So will Vince I believe if given the opportunity.

  2. NO Not Stevenson ! He is Terrible ! “Step right in and Play”, You have got to be kidding me ! He has not made a play from the ILB spot since he set foot (No Pun intended)on the Field since he was signed by the Steelers. There has to be Someone/Anyone Better out there.
    The Rookies on the PS are Better !

    Sorry, End of Rant.
