    New PS guys.

    So I see the Steelers added 3. T Joe Long (Jake's Brother), G Justin Cheadle, WR Bert Reed. I like the Joe Long signing. Might be a guy who could be coached up and just need some time to grow. Also the Steelers don't mind if a college tackle becomes a NFL guard.
    Hate losing the guys who already had a camp with the Steelers but maybe one of theses guys works out better.

    2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)
    3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St. (Nick Vannett)

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    I'm still happy that Ta'amu is on there as well; hopefully, he can put his indiscretions behind him and move forward.

    PS guys are unlikely to be much help now or in the future. If we draft in the mid-teens like many of us think then we should be able to get a really good OT. I really thought we turned the corner on the OL but that has proven to be a false assumption. We still need more talent injected there.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    Josh Victorian was waived and is no longer on our practice squad.

    Good call. Those 9 guys were listed on the Steelers site earlier today, but the P.S. can only hold 8 guys. Their site has since been updated. Apparently Victorian was let go in order to bring in Reed. Long takes over the slot made available when Jacksonville claimed Clemons. Cheadle takes over the slot made available when we promoted Malecki.

    I'm still going to hold out hope on this one. He appears to have the size and strength - if he can figure out the rest, he still has potential.

    Steelers need this to be a hit, or they'll be forced into drafting a NT this year again.
