Past Fantasy Outlooks

2012
Beset by issues both on and off the field in his brief career, Ta'amu has yet to fulfill expectations as a fourth-round pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. He initially burned bridges with the Steelers after an encounter with local police. Upon joining the Cardinals just before the 2013 campaign kicked off, he was contained to nine tackles in 14 games, and an ACL tear in Week 17 bled into last season. While his 2013 output remains his sole contribution as a professional, the offseason addition of Corey Peters could hamper Ta'amu's chances of landing on this year's 53-man roster.
Selected in the fourth round of the 2012 Draft, Ta'amu has been a disappointment, spending more time in court than on the playing field.
Regarded as one of the few two-gap nose tackles, Ta'amu was selected by the Steelers with the 109th pick in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He will serve as a backup to Casey Hampton and Steve McLendon in his rookie season.

I was a Steeler and I was drunk driving," Ta'amu told the judge. In response, the judge said "You shouldn't be treated any more harshly, but you shouldn't be dealt with a lighter hand because you're a Pittsburgh Steeler."
