I have no idea why people seem down on Cam Thomas so far this season. He's played quite well in the first two preseason games, and he's done it at two positions (NT & DE). Maybe some have preconceived notions about the guy based on his career in SD? (I seriously doubt ANYONE here studied Cam Thomas while he was in SD) Is it because of the offseason lawsuit he's allegedly involved in? (We all know how these lawsuits often end up).
I love Keisel and always will. I'm going to assume this is a good depth signing, but hopefully he's not going to be counted on to start and play every snap at DE this year. Personally, I think Keisel is here to help for the short term, but more importantly to teach Tuitt (whom the organization is sky-high over) some of the nuances of playing 5-tech for the Steelers.
If these are the 7 DL they keep this year (Heyward, McLendon, Thomas, Tuitt, Keisel, Mauro, McCullers) I'll be very happy w/the DLine situation moving forward. I think Arnfeldt ends up on the PS.
