Ta'amu, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 Draft after playing his college ball with the Washington Huskies, was arrested last month for a drunken-driving tirade that involved police evasion. After crashing into four park vehicles, Ta'amu attempted to flee police before eventually being taken down in a nearby area.
He was suspended immediately by the Steelers and has yet to play this season.
Ta'amu will now have to find a new team to play for, and it seems likely he will not find a suitor until his criminal case is settled in court. Ta'amu is currently facing a combination of 18 felony, misdemeanor and summary citations, according to this report from ESPN.
The 22-year-old lineman has since apologized for his actions. The Steelers are yet to officially release a statement, although one could come soon.
