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.

Steelers signed TE John Gilmore, formerly of the Bucs.

The Steelers needed a backup for Heath Miller after losing free agent Matt Spaeth to the Bears last week. Gilmore will fill a blocking-only role.

TE John Gilmore, formerly of the Bears, agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Bucs.

Surprising the Bucs made Gilmore such a priority, but he's a solid blocker who will add to their tight end rotation. For now, he's a backup to Alex Smith.

The Bucs are working on bringing in TE John Gilmore for a visit.

Gilmore is primarily a blocking tight end, and would help fill the void left by Anthony Becht. The Bucs have Alex Smith on their roster, and are also pursuing Alge Crumpler as an upgrade to Jerramy Stevens.

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."

Bears TE John Gilmore was arrested early Saturday morning after an incident outside a Gold Coast night club.

The Associated Press reports Gilmore was taken into custody for disorderly conduct, trespassing, and resisting arrest. Gilmore was also found to be in possession of marijuana, for which he was also charged. He's currently free on bond.
Sat, Jul 22, 2006 12:05:00 PM

Dick Jauron and the Bills could be interested in the blocking tight end.
Fri, Mar 10, 2006 11:16:00 AM
