    Steelers Release Blount

    CBS Sports.com – The Steelers announced they have released running back LeGarrette Blount. Blount left Monday’s game before it ended because he was upset over his lack of playing time.

He produced a 1,000-yard rushing season his rookie season for Tampa Bay, but his attitude has not endeared him to any team. He has played for four teams during his five-year career. During the 2014 season, Blount has 65 carries for 266 yards and two touchdowns.

    “Mean” Joe’s Jersey Retired

    (Photo Courtesy of Twitter/SNFonNBC) CBSSports.com – Before Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers had only retired one number ever in franchise history, now they’ve retired two. Former Steelers defensive tackle ‘Mean’ Joe Greene had his No. 75 officially retired at halftime of Pittsburgh’s game against Baltimore. Greene anchored a ‘Steel Curtain’ defense in the 1970s that helped lead the franchise to four Super Bowl titles and six AFC Championship game appearances.
