Steeples was released from the active squad on Saturday and cleared waivers.  The team is still lacking serious depth at the cornerback position and will need to evaluate a lot of talent going into the offseason.  Steeples was a member of the Memphis Tigers before joining the St. Louis Rams and then making his way to the Vikings.

He has this in this Twitter profile:

“When you’re not working, somewhere, somebody else is & when you meet them,they will win.”

Keep working hard, Robert.  It will keep paying off for you and hopefully the football team in Minnesota.
