    Yeah, they got rid of Davenport-finally-but also cut three white players: Mike Lorello, Jared Retkofsky, and Doug Legursky.

    Let`s hope they give Jeremy Bloom and Jared Zabransky legitimate chances to make the team in August.

    After dumping the criminal Davenport, they are now in love with the troubled Gary Russell:
    "There is another reason Davenport was released: The Steelers did not want to part with Gary Russell, a second-year free agent whom the coaches think can develop into a top-notch NFL running back."

    Mike Tomlin looks to be another Lovie Smith and Denny Green when it comes to white players. And the Rooney family is as pro-Caste as any ownership group in the league. I expect the Steelers to have only a dozen or so white players on their roster this season.

    Jared Zabransky has been cut. He didn`t even make it to preseason camp.

    I guess Mike Tomlin can`t get enough of Dennis Dixon already.
