    If they needed a warm camp body they should have called up Terry Hawthorne... last year's 5th rounder that didn't make it thru camp.

    If he couldn't make it through camp and played zero football for anyone last year, why would they call him?

    That'd be about like signing the lowest rated corner in the league to me.. just sayin'.

    With no guaranteed money, it is a fine signing. With guaranteed $, I don't like it
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Well, I will say this: Even with a few weaker dudes added, I like all the overall activity and they did make some surprising, quality moves. When is the last time you recall free agency where Pgh added more than 1 - if any - players with potential substantial playing time in free agency? They signed 3 or maybe 4 so far.

    Details for McCain

    Steelers get McCain for vet minimum plus $65 K bonus. He will count $635,000 against their cap. That means he adds $215 K to cap as top-51

    and

    Steelers now have a little less than $400 K in salary cap space.

    If you need depth...You sign a vet who has played in the NFL in 72 games & started 10. You don't sign your old draft pick that lost his job in camp that you cut. Hasn't played a snap in the NFL. He was thought of so highly...No other NFL team even signed him to the PS. Injury, attitude, ability....Something is off.

    Good signing going forward. Again...Win-Win. Doesn't work out or gets beat out...Cut him before 53.

    A better question..... Why would they draft Hawthorne then especially in the 5th round? Doesn't make the Steelers roster and is on no one elses roster in his first year after the Steelers drafted him in the 5th. Talk about a miss!
