    Steelers ink a pair of draft picks

    Monday, July 07, 2008
    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08189/895350-66.stm
    The Steelers reached agreement today on three-year contracts with two of their 2008 draft picks.

    Fourth-round selection Tony Hill, a 6-foot-5, 309-pound left tackle for the Texas Longhorns reached agreement with the team, sources said today. The deal includes a signing bonus of $304,500.

    Fifth-round pick Dennis Dixon, a quarterback out of Oregon, also came to terms on a deal that includes a $130,000 signing bonus.

    Dixon, the Pac-10 Conference's offensive player of the year, missed his final three college games with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The Steelers have said they expect Dixon to be recovered from his injury in time for training camp.

    More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Yea.... Hills (it is with an "S" isn't it?..... Bad work by the editor) info was released back on Friday..... Dixon is news, though. Let's hope he doesn't "make it rain" again.... This article focuses on someone else, but read who was WITH him.....
