It seems like the Steelers need a veteran to compete with free agent acquisition Jonathan Scott for the RT position. Veteran castoff Flozell Adams has visited with the Steelers, and is reportedly asking for $4 million a year. Denver and Washington are also said to be pursuing Adams.
Pittsburgh has plenty of combo G/Ts, and most of them are in their third year or less.
First-round pick Maurkice Pouncey will compete for reps at RG and C, which gives the Steelers the option of moving veteran Trai Essex to the starting RT position. At worst, Essex will continue to provide depth at both spots.
Jury's still out on Ramon Foster, who played for Essex last season when he was hurt. Same goes for second-year Kraig Urbik, who didn't suit up at all last year. Pittsburgh is still looking for Tony Hills to come around.
For a team with a rocky off-season, Willie Colon's injury couldn't have come at a worse time. The challenge has been set for new offensive line coach Sean Kugler, and Steelers fans hope he's up for the job. Otherwise, they'll be struggling to stay at the 9-7 mark they had last year.
