Default What is Cam Thomas going to bring to the table?

I just read an article on Steelers.com that says Cam Thomas is a starting defensive end for this years team. I honesty thought it was going to be Stephon Tuitt, but I thought wrong. Cam Thomas only has 6 sacks in 4 years of football time. I don't know, I'm really wanting to see Tuitt in action. Guess I better make the most of this years preseason lol

I do hope this guy plays well for us, but him being benched worries me...

He's got enough mass to play NT in our system. And able to play DE if needed. So with that said, versatility. He probably won't be more than a backup, but I could be wrong. In any case, having someone who could back up at both DL positions is valuable in its own.

I'm hoping his benching last year was just a down season for him. He's got youth and size on his side (27), so if he ends up being a good player in our system, then it's a big win for us

I was really hoping Tuitt would assume a starting Defensive End position opposite Heyward

well it still might happen, that's what training camp is for. they don't have a starter set in stone opposite of heyward.

thomas is slated as the starter in beginning of camp, but over the years you should know that means jack squat. if tuitt is ready for the nfl and shows it in pads, he'll be the man

Eventually, his place at the table is on the bench......

Seriously, eventually spot starter, rotational DL, at best. Tuitt better be coming on strong, and be quick about it.

Everyone in here wants the rookie to start.
That normally doesn't pan well.
But I like tuitt a lot.
