PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Steelers finally gave up on 2004 second-round draft pick Ricardo Colclough, releasing the cornerback Tuesday and signing cornerback Anthony Madison.
Madison played in 12 games for Pittsburgh as a rookie free agent last season. He was released by Pittsburgh when training camp ended this year and spent a week with Tampa Bay before being waived.
Colclough was a gamble pick by the Steelers out of Division II Tusculum and he never found a regular role in their defense. In three-plus Steelers seasons, Colclough had one interception and 33 tackles.
