End of the Line for Clint Kriewaldt? -- UPDATE

Jerame Tuman won't be back after all.

Word from Pro Football Weekly is that he has signed a two-year contract with Pittsburgh West (i.e. the Arizona Cardinals).

Terms of the deal were not announced.

Original Post
The following is from an item at Pro Football Weekly:
"The Steelers created more salary-cap space by releasing three veteran players — LB Clint Kriewaldt, CB-KR Allen Rossum and TE Jerame Tuman. Kriewaldt, a nine-year veteran who was a special-teams standout, was hindered by shoulder and neck injuries in 2007 and ended the year on injured reserve. Tuman, also a nine-year vet, played in six games in '07 before going on I.R. with a back injury. Rossum, a 10-year vet, played one season with Pittsburgh and was their leading kickoff and punt returner. "
For Jerame Tuman this is standard for the off-season -- don't be surprised if he is re-signed prior to training camp. But for Clint Kriewaldt, this may be the end of the line as a Pittsburgh Steelers. And Alan Rossum? Whatever that conditional pick turns out to be, it doesn't appear that the Steelers got their money's worth.
