That's what the link said, though it did indicate no terms had been released.

to figure sweeds contract, look at dwayne jarrett from last year and increse it about 15%. im not sure what jarrett got but im willing to bet sweeds deal will be in the area of 4 years/$7 mil. with about $1.75 guaranteed.

which means sweed will be making about as much money as santonio holmes due to inflation. good thing holmes is a team player. him and heath miller will be due for some hefty raises.

I can imagine it now listening to our PA Announcer yelling out TD's from Big Ben to Sweed and Mendenhall ending up in the end zone a lot this year.

Bring on the aerial showcase!!! Let it fly Ben.... and if you can't hit Sweed's big hands, then it wasn't a tall WR you needed! It was more O-line.................

Thats the problem with rookie contracts. A rookie making more than a proven NFL player. The Players Union must deal with this!:tt03:

What a steal this guy is gonna be for the Steelers.....By mid season he is gonna be a monster. All teams that past him up will be kicking themselves in the rear.

If I were Nate, I'd be making a true mark in training camp.

Well.........he's not signed yet according to theTrib....

Mendenhall signed a five-year contract with the Steelers two days before the start of training camp, leaving wide receiver Limas Sweed as the only draft pick that remains unsigned.

Director of football operations Kevin Colbert and coach Mike Tomlin have said they expect Sweed to sign before the start of training camp.

Steelers sign No. 2 pick Sweed
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Sunday, July 27, 2008


All of the players will be present and accounted for when the Steelers open training camp with a conditioning run.
Wide receiver Limas Sweed signed a four-year contract with the Steelers today, becoming the final draft pick to officially come to terms with the team.

The Steelers report to St. Vincent today, and the team will hold its first two practices of training camp Monday.

Sweed, a second-round pick out of Texas, is expected to crack a rotation at wide receiver that includes returning starters Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes as well as Nate Washington.
