    Default Steelers' WR Sweed switching to No. 80

    Steelers' WR Sweed switching to No. 80
    April, 29, 2010
    By James Walker

    It appears Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Limas Sweed is looking for a fresh start.

    Sweed is changing his uniform number from No. 14 to No. 80 this upcoming season, according to the team's updated roster. The former second-round pick has struggled with dropped balls and concentration during his first two NFL seasons.

    The Steelers will host their veteran minicamp this weekend and the entire team will be present.

    Following the recent trade of former Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes, the Steelers are not very deep at receiver behind starters Hines Ward and Mike Wallace. That opens up another opportunity, and perhaps a final chance, for Sweed to earn his way back into the rotation. He will compete with veterans Antwaan Randle El, Arnaz Battle and rookie Emmanuel Sanders for playing time.

    Rookie receiver Antonio Brown will wear Sweed's old No. 14 jersey this offseason.

    My first thought is this is idiotic, but after some thought, maybe it will help. This guys problems seems to be in his head, so maybe some kooky mental adjustment (tied to his jersey #) will help get him on track.

    I know, I'm grasping at straws, but as long as he's going to be on the roster, he might as well start producing on the field.

    Let's give him one more chance.

    Or better yet, a real solid unyielding chance.

    If he drops a pass in a game, throw him another one, and another one, and another one. After 4 drops, take his *** out.

    I think we give him ONE more shot.
