Former Steelers WR Limas Sweed Released By Ottawa Redblacks
The career of former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Limas Sweed is over with the Ottawa Redblacks of the Canadian Football League.
Well, it actually never started, as the former second-round draft pick was released Wednesday by the expansion franchise.
This was Sweed’s second failed attempt at playing north of the border as the Saskatchewan Roughriders placed the Texas product on the team’s suspended list at the start of their training camp last June.
It’s been a tough six years for Sweed, but it looks like he better move on with his life’s work. He will turn 30 this coming December and will be lucky if an Arena League team is willing to give him a tryout at this point.
