Steelers released TE John Gilmore.

The 32-year-old former Buccaneerw and Bears tight end was signed to serve as a blocking specialist, but the Steelers liked what they saw from undrafted rookie Weslye Saunders as the backup to Heath Miller.

Steelers TE John Gilmore is not assured of a roster spot.

Gilmore was signed earlier this month to serve as a blocking specialist behind Heath Miller, but is apparently battling both undrafted rookie Weslye Saunders and second-year pro Jamie McCoy for a roster spot. A load at 6-foot-6, 273 pounds, Saunders is a better bet than McCoy to beat out Gilmore.

Bears TE John Gilmore is upset that he was inactive for Week 14, but says it won't affect the looming free agent's plans this offseason.

Sure it won't. Gilmore, the No. 3 TE and a blocking specialist, said the move "wasn't cool." He has fallen behind Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen at the position, and will likely take his 21 catches in six seasons elsewhere this offseason.

TE John Gilmore said Thursday that he's prepared to start in Week 4 if TE Desmond Clark (foot) is out, but doesn't expect to catch many passes.

''Our tight end, it's a label position,'' Gilmore said. ''Either you're a blocker or you're a receiver. My job is to go out there and block in the running game. They made it clear to me when I came here, that's what we want you to do."
