Default Nothing official..but...?

While scanning the blogs, forums, and draft sites...I see that a couple of sites are saying that the Steelers may have LBer Landon Johnson come in for a visit....I will let you know If I see anything "official".

Yea I read a little about this on NFL.com it says that Cinci is switching to the 3-4 and Johnson doesn't fit into their plans. He is 6'2 but only 230lbs, and they want him to play OLB cuz they have Ahmad Brooks and they think Odell Thurman will be reinstated this year. So that takes up their ILB positions. He is a pretty solid tackler and that is what the Steelers like. He is pretty young so he could be the successor for Farrior or Foote. I compare him to DeMeco Ryans, they are both small LB's, but are quick to recognize plays and solid tacklers. Let's see if we open up our thin checkbooks.

Um, not for nothing folks, but I'm not sure we have that much more cap room for any new guys.

He's played both for the Bengals and led them in tackles for the last 3-4 years.

I agree ... but the Steelers could have already decided to let a big salary go and just didn't want to release someone the day they give Big Ben a new contract. They don't have to be under the cap, yet. Also, Ben's new contract might have even saved us a bit over what the experts were saying was his cap hit this season. I'm not sure about that, but I do know he was due an almost 3 mill roster bonus this month that most people were probably adding to our cap, but now that bonus has now been spread out over the lenght of his contract.
