And so we bid adieu to punt returner Jeremy Bloom, the now-former Steeler whose resume also includes male modeling and olympic skiing. The female division of Steeler Nation is surely beside themselves with the news.
Bloom's 2008 preseason stats included zero punt returns, which isn't a good number for a guy who was trying to make the team as a punt returner. So it goes without saying that his release was not a major surprise. That only leaves about 22 other punt returners in camp.
Also released were quarterback Mike Potts and defensive lineman Martavius Prince. The team must release one more player by 4 p.m. tomorrow to get the NFL roster limit of 75.
