Kevin Colbert, director of football operations for the Pittsburgh Steelers, told me Ziggy Hood -- last year's first-round draft pick -- was ready to make a bigger contribution in his second year with the team. He said receiver Limas Sweed was working at the facility and still is very much a part of the Steelers' plans. Like many Steelers faithful, Colbert is very happy to have Antwaan Randle El and Larry Foote back with the team. Even after Randle El left in 2006 to join the Redskins, Colbert said, he always was a Steeler.

i'm really surprised by that -

i expected Colbert to say things more like "Ziggy Hood should regress in his 2nd year, Limas Sweed is as good as outta here and i have no idea why the hell we ever brought old washed-up players like Foote and Randle-El back"...

From a fan's perspective though it's still good to hear these types of things about players regardless, of what happens to them or whether or not they produce. It's the off season and I like hearing that young players are working hard and should contribute, even if that isn't what actually happens.

I think that the real nuggets to take out of this are......

We once again need to remember that Steeler defensive rookies rarely contribute and look lost in their first year, but are then asked to step up in year two. Troy, Timmons, Woodley all did very little in year one. Let us see what Hood can contribute in year two.

Wow, Limas is in Pittsburgh working out. Probably a surprise to most of us. It would really change the dynamic of our receiving corps if this guy can finally live up to his potential.
