To make room on their training camp roster for the signings of Jason Worilds and Flozell Adams, and to prepare for the signing of Maurkice Pouncey, the Steelers released LBs Johnny Williams and Lindsey Whitten, plus veteran LS Matt Stewart.

Kinda surprised Whitten got cut without seeing him in camp. Either he looked real bad on OTAs or Worilds and Gibson look really good.

I honestly haven't heard of any of those guys...I hope we sign Pouncey today so he doesn't miss a second of camp.

What's more surprising is they aren't IRing rookie chris Scott. I thought he'd be on IR. I can't Imagine
them saving a roster spot until oct for him.

I wouldn't even mind if you said that a couple of more times!

Steelers agree to terms with Maurkice Pouncey
Posted by Mike Florio on July 30, 2010 2:27 PM ET
The Steelers have struggled on the offensive line of late, and they addressed their deficiencies by devoting their first-round pick to center Maurkice Pouncey.

Per a league source, Pouncey has agreed to terms, and he is on the way to camp.

Pouncey was the 18th pick in the draft. His contract became easy to finalize given that the player taken in front of him (49ers guard Mike Iupati) and directly behind him (Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon) recently inked their rookie deals.

Financial terms aren't yet available, but it's safe to say Pouncey got much more than $100,000.

Of course Florio can't resist taking a shot.

I'm surprised by the Whitten cut. I thought he would end up on the practice squad this year. I follow him on twitter. He is ALWAYS at the gym. and he was working with a few really good lb'ers earlier this summer. his cousin is in the NFL.. can't remember who he plays for. I feel bad for him.. he literally tweeted "just got to pittsburgh" and withing like 2 minutes there was a tweet from someone else that he'd been cut.

Yeah, I picked Lindsay Witten and Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith as a couple of solid practice squad candidates for us on our prediction thread, and neither one even made it to Latrobe.

I am shocked by Whitten being cut. I am in UCONN land here in CT and he was a beast at times during decent competition. Maybe not big enough to play LB? Maybe they saw another Davis in him? Oh well...In the front office I trust.

Whitten is a head scratcher. I thought he'd get drafted. I was excited when we picked him up.
