Steelers sign Roy Lewis from practice squad
Saturday, November 15, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
T
he Steelers added another cornerback to their weakened secondary today when they signed rookie Roy Lewis from their practice squad.

To make room for Lewis, they released wide receiver Dallas Baker, who had shared the No. 3 spot with rookie Limas Sweed for one game when coach Mike Tomlin deactivated Santonio Holmes against the New York Giants Oct. 26.

Baker, a seventh-round draft choice from Florida in 2007, played in eight games this season and had one catch for six yards. He could be re-signed next week if he clears waivers.

Lewis, who is 5-10 190, signed as an undrafted rookie with the Steelers this season from the University of Washington. He spent the past 10 weeks on their practice squad.

shuffle, shuffle, shuffle

I thought Baker might have a chance to stick on the roster.  Still might, I guess.

Wasn't that him in the back of the EZ on the Hail Mary? Dude needed to get a little more aggressive when the game winning biscuit is floating your way. Would have loved to see what Hines would have done in that same spot.

Oh.  Well, maybe that's why a spot became available.  It did look like there was a chance for a Steeler to grab that when it deflected.

He also had a pretty critical drop in the Colts game.

The dude sucks.  He'll clear waivers.
