NFL - Scoop Du Jour

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills are in talks that could bring wide receiver/kick returner Roscoe Parrish to the Steel City, according to

The report suggests the roster move made by the Steelers to drop Gary Russell was a preliminary move to the deal for Parrish.

The reason the deal would be logical, is twofold. First he is a proven wide receiver, (something the team needs with the loss of Nate Washington) but of more importance is what he can do as a return man.

Parrish not only is good, he has been the best the past two years. He led the NFL with a 16.3-yard average in 2007 and a 15.3-yard average in 2008 on punts. He also has reached the endzone and the past three seasons has scored on returns. Parrish also has a career mark of 23.7 on kickoffs, according to the report.

Buffalo selected Parrish in the second round of the 2005 draft with the 55th pick. He has six starts in four seasons, catching 97 passes for 1,052 yards and five touchdowns.
