Browns Ink Former Steeler Corner Colclough

ColcloughThe Browns may be trying to get a little inside info from a former Steeler as they get set for next weekend’s game in Pittsburgh, as Wednesday the team picked up just released Steelers cornerback Ricardo Colclough.  The former second round pick of the Steelers in 2004 was let go by the team Tuesday as some say it was done by Steelers coach Mike Tomlin to send a message to other vets.  Colclough missed a key block on a long Bengals punt return Sunday in the Steelers 24-13 win in Cincy, and some speculate that Tomlin had seen enough of the former second-round pick.  He played in three games this season for Pittsburgh and 36 the past three years.  No question that the Browns will pick his brain a bit as they get set for the Steelers November 11th in Pittsburgh.

    This is a really great move by the Browns. Here you have an underachieving player with no polished skills amd no apparent football awareness, who is not reputed to be a great teammate or locker room guy, and he has a history of making big blunders on the handful of plays for which he’s on the field. I’m sure he will have lots of intelligence to share on the defense. (Hint: they play a 3-4 and run this zone blitz thing. Does that help?)

    Are there any sources for the “some say it was done” to send a message to other vets gossip? Other blogs, even? Whispers at the sports bar? Anything?

    In any event, Colclough missed a tackle — not a bvlock — on a Bengals punt return. Colclough played for the Steelers at the time. When the other team is returning a punt, you try to tackle them, not block them.
