Steelers Waive S Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith From Injured Reserve

According to the Tuesday NFL transactions release, the Pittsburgh Steelers have waived safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith from their reserve/injured list.

Cromartie-Smith was waived injured last week with a hip injury suffered in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings in order to make room for veteran safety Will Allen, who had been recently released from the Dallas Cowboys. The former undrafted free agent reverted back to the Steelers reserve/injured list after clearing waivers. Being as he is now deemed healthy, he was waived again on Tuesday.

The Steelers originally signed Cromartie-Smith as an undrafted frere agent in 2010 and most of his time has been spent on their practice squad. This year, however, Cromartie-Smith made the Steelers final 53 man roster out of training camp. He is currently out of practice squad eligibility.

    That means we need to draft a safety again next year, right? And one that will be expected to play! Any free agent safeties worth looking at, coming out next year?

  • Eric

    I am not sure the waiver of Comartie-Smith and the signing of Will Allen means we use a high pick on a safety next year, even if Ryan Clark is not a Steeler in 2014. Shamarko is working out and Troy is playing greatand Gay supposedly can play safety in an emergency . Our biggest need is obviously a Left OT, and 21 other guys that do not get injured.

    Just another reminder how quickly an NFL dream can turn into reality and then into only a memory.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    do not forget about Golden.

  • Jonas

    I do not forget about Golden getting trucked by a QB

  • steeltown

    Agreed.. OT and CB are the biggest needs heading into 2014 IMO

  • steeltown

    It was a collision of two players, Cutler weighs 35lbs more than Golden and I imagine Golden half expected him to not lower his shoulder

  • Jonas

    Still not good for the reputation..

    But okay; who expects such a risky (therefore stupid) move by a QB. I agree with you!

  • Dr. Doom

    Would have served Cutler right if he broke his shoulder.

  • Shannon Stephenson

    whether you think he can be a starter is yet to be seen but he gets into the games so time will tell. Letting QB’s run over you isn’t a good thing though no matter what the situation.
