The Steelers continue to rapidly close in on their goal of getting all draft picks signed prior to the team’s commencement of training camp in Latrobe, PA on July 30th.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has reported that the Steelers came to terms with Chris Scott, an offensive tackle out of Tennessee and friend of 2009 rookie free agent Ramon Foster, and Crezdon Bulter, a cornerback out of Clemson.
Scott was their first pick in the fifth round, and comes to the Steelers with 39 collegiate starts under his belt. Butler, who was their second fifth round pick, started 40 games and pulled down 11 interceptions for the Tigers.
Both men signed three year contracts and agreed to play for the rookie minimum. To clear roster room the Steelers cut rookie free agent Da’Mon Cormartie Smith.
Focus Now on Pouncy and Worilds
The Steelers still have yet to come to terms with their top two draft picks, first round pick center Maurkice Pouncey and second round pick linebacker Jason Worilds.
Polling Suspended (Again)
Bloggers polling plugin officially SUCKS. For weeks now I've watch as vote tallies on Steelers free agency, draft needs, and the draft itself go up... and then down.
Thanks to all of those who voted, but I'm taking the poll on Jarvis Jones down because there are 80% fewer votes now than yesterday afternoon....
