So Long Tank – RB Frank Summers Inks with Chargers

Former 5th round pick Frank “the Tank” Summers has signed a contract with the Chargers as a free agent.

The 2009 draft pick had a rather quiet career with the Steelers filled with injury. He made the club as a rookie and played in two games, starting one before they put him on IR with a back injury that forced him to have surgery.

This past season he lost a roster spot to rookie halfback Jonathan Dwyer. Summers was placed on the Steelers practice squad where he spent the whole year. He declined to sign a contract after the season.

I liked Summers, felt he had potential, but the back injury killed his shot to have some type of impact, and while Dwyer almost was cut himself, he outshined Summers in the last couple preseason games and the coaches felt that Summers wasn’t going to be worth the roster spot.

In another move, the Steelers re-signed safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, who had spent his 2010 rookie season on their practice squad.
