TIME TO RETIRE YOUR SEAN MAHAN JERSEY

It's a sad day for the thousands of Yinzers who invested in a Sean Mahan Steelers jersey to wear on Sundays, because they just became outdated. Mahan, who came over from Tampa Bay via free agency last season, was just traded back to the Bucs for an undisclosed 2009 draft pick. Somehow, I doubt it's a first-rounder.

And thus ends the Steeler career of Mahan, which goes down as their 2007 Horrible Offensive Line Signing, a 5-year deal worth $17 million (with a $4 million signing bonus). In case you're wondering, the 2008 award has already been bestowed upon the nearly $7 million guaranteed contract to backup tackle Max Starks.

In other news concering disappointing Steelers, WR Willie Reid was signed to the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. Yawn.

Saints announced a practice squad of six players and Tyler Palko wasn't one of them. Two spots open, but it looks like they might be looking for someone else. Anybody hear anything out there?

Palko was waived.

Saints are supposedly bringing in Joey Harrington for a tire-kick:

Mahan was a waste.

Wow, Tampa probably will give back a 7th rounder. Nevertheless, I'd say getting ANYTHING for Mahan is an absolute steal.
