10:56 AM ET 02.16 | If Rashard Mendenhall isn't back in Pittsburgh next season, it won't be because of the late season blow up which resulted in Mendenhall no showing for a game in which he was inactive. After the incident, we hear Mendenhall and head coach Mike Tomlin patched everything up, and Tomlin told Mendenhall the door was open for his return in 2013. That does not mean the Steelers will decide Mendenhall is their best option at halfback, however.

Good for him, now they can part ways on a good note. Don't let the door hit ya Rashard...and be sure to take Mike (Me First) Wallace with you.

Didn't he get benched for arguing with a coach ?

I agree..but they better have a reliable replacement plan in place if they do. Dwyer and Redman are not NFL #1 halfbacks. given the emphasis Haley plans on giving the running game, they need a horse that can tote the rock 20+ times a game....every game.

Instead, he showed up wearing something from Prison Break.

Always mend fences and don't burn bridges in your way out the door. You may need to come back someday.
