GRISHAM IN, PALKO OUT FOR STEELERS



On the eve of a must-win against Cleveland, the Steelers made a few roster moves today, bumping up WR Tyler Grisham from the practice squad and releasing QB Tyler Palko. The move was necessary due to the questionable status of WR Hines Ward, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

The 5'11", 180-pound Grisham is a product of Clemson and was a camp casualty in 2009. According to the Trib's John Harris, he has "football speed" comparable to Wes Welker and Kevin Curtis. I'll bet he's scrappy and runs great routes, too.

Palko, the former Pitt Panther, was signed by the Steelers on November 28 after the injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Charlie Batch. He was the #2 QB against Baltimore and the #3 QB against Oakland, but did not see any game action.

"Scrappy" and "great route runner" are football code for "white dude".

don't forget to add "a great possession receiver" as another pseudonym for "white guy".

That said, if Tyler Grisham is able to add "catches passes that hit him in the hands" to his resume then he should have no problem vaulting Limas Sweed on the depth chart.

Grisham also reminds many people of a young Ed McCaffrey or an offensive Jason Sehorn.
