Several people have asked me today about cornerback Isaiah Green, who was waived by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday to make room for defensive back Antwon Blake. According to the Tuesday official NFL transaction report, Green passed through waivers unclaimed.
So, will the Steelers now sign Green back to practice squad on Wednesday? It’s really hard to say right now, but you would think that it’s possible considering the fact that the only cornerback currently on the practice squad is Devin Smith, who was behind Green on the depth chart ever since he was signed to the 90 man roster during training camp.
The Steelers thought enough of Green to keep him on their original 53 man roster, so it is hard to imagine that he fell out of favor that quick.
Green was originally signed by the Steelers back in January, so I don’t believe that we’ve seen the last of him unless another team signs him top their practice squad over the course of the next few days.
