    Puzzling. Maybe he can help on ST's, but it's hard to see him helping our D get better.

    This ranks with the Guy Wimper signing last year.

    Maybe Lake thinks he can coach him up. Before last season, he had a couple of good years as a nickle back. And he has good speed. Guess we'll see.

    I don't think that he's even assured of making the team. He's a little bit of depth at a position where the Steelers currently have none. If camp opened today, he'd be competing for the #4 CB spot. I'm hoping for a better option, but there are worse things than veteran depth.

    He will replace Curtis Brown for camp. The draft plan shouldn't change at all. He probably won't make it to the final 53
