    Steelers have reached agreement with former Bills tackle

    Steelers intend to sign two today
    Monday, March 08, 2010
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    The Steelers are giving physicals to San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Arnaz Battle and Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Will Allen and intend to reach contract agreement with both players today.

    Also, the Steelers have reached agreement with former Buffalo Bills tackle Jon Scott (6-foot-6, 31, an unrestricted free agent who started eight games for the Bills in 2009. Scott will be reunited with the Steelers' new offensive line coach, Sean Kugler, who coached in Buffalo last season.

    Allen, 27, would be a likely replacement for Ryan Clark, an unrestricted free agent who is meeting today with the Miami Dolphins.

    A former special teams captain for the Buccaneers, Allen played in only eight games last season after being placed on injured reserve with a thumb injury. He was a fourth-round draft choice out of Ohio State in 2004 who has four interceptions in 84 career games.

    Battle, 30, had 178 catches for 2,150 yards and 11 touchdowns in seven seasons with the 49ers. Like Allen, he is considered a special-teams standout.

    The Steelers signing 3 players in the first few days of FA???

    total chaos. cats and dogs living together.


    Anyway- this makes me wonder.

    If the Steelers really are loading up on depth at some of these key positions... maybe they are planing to try to move up on the draft to get someone they think is an impact player.

    hmmmmm

    Let's read between the lines. They goot a potential starting FS or at least a veteran to compete. They are close to signing a OT with starters experience who provides at a minimum depth on the OL.

    Guess what two positions we won't be drafting in Round 1. Is that the sound of bubbles bursting I hear
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    yeah, it really makes me think a couple scenarios

    Take OT & FS off the board in the 1st (I really didn't think they'd go FS anyway.)
    I still believe K. Lewis is their intended starter at FS- if not this season then next.

    A. Dan Williams if he is there- maybe even move up a few.

    But more than NT, they need a corner. I can not see Haden droping that far- so they'd have to move up to get him.

    You know Jacksonville is going to be trying to trade down, but even with the combine- I don't think Haden lasts until #10.

    hmmmm

    something is brewing.

    yeah, i thought about that. McClain will probably be within reach.

    I just cant get past the glaring issue at Corner though.

    Not that I'd have a problem taking McClain.

    I wouldn't read too much into the signing of Allen. He will just be the replacement of Carter. We still need a starter at that position.

    What's brewing my friend is CJ Spiller

    Seriously, I think this means we go LB or DL and I'm serious that if Spiller is sitting there (highly unlikely) they don't pass on him.

    I'm thinking it is looking like Spoon or Odrick, I don't think we would grab Williams in the first.
