Too many to sift through.

Wil Allen signed...via twitter, Arnez Battle has agreed to a 3 year deal as well.

Second that.

Also, one single thread would just get confusing. You'd be lucky to have two posts about the same guy show up on the same page of the thread.

Not that it would matter though, since 90% of it would just be "OMG we're not signing that guy, don't you know the Steelers don't go after free agents??? So go root for the Redskins, thanks."

Just read on ESPN that we signed OT Jonathan Scott, free agent who last played with Buffalo. 6'6" 318.

A bit from the Post Gazette:

"Also, the Steelers have reached contract agreement with former Buffalo Bills tackle Jonathan Scott (6-foot-6, 318), an unrestricted free agent who started eight games for the Bills in 2009. Scott will be reunited with the Steelers' new offensive line coach, Sean Kugler, who coached in Buffalo last season."

Theres not really much point of a big thread.

1. could get confusing
2. miley cyprus is fit
3. we wouldnt really get much activity since we probably wont sign more than 5 i dunno :huh:

That is hard to believe we signed three in one day that has to be a record.

Gotta say it kinda made me feel good seeing our team make a few headlines and twitter updates.

Sure beats the hell out of the OTHER non stop Steelers feed updates constantly flooding my twitter page in recent days.

Well this is a first. We have so many free agent signings that people actually want one super thread to replace all of the free agent signing threads cluttering the front page.

lol

"Steelers are NOT an active FA team" seemed to be a theme there for a while...

So... the entire staff goes on a weekend retreat to open free agency, then returns on monday to go hog wild in free agency? It just doesn't make sense. lol

Love the moves though. Every one of em' makes us a better team heading towards next year. That's all we can ask for as fans i suppose. The team is actually using FA as a tool. :tt:
