Default OLB Fox visits

Free agent linebacker visits Steelers
Tuesday, March 11, 2008
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have little room under the salary cap to sign free agents, but they keep parading them through their South Side facility.

Outside linebacker Keyaron Fox, who played the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, is meeting with the coaching staff today -- the sixth free agent to visit the Steelers since the free agency period began.

Fox, 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, a former third-round draft choice, would be a backup linebacker and special-teams player.

The only free agent to sign with the Steelers is former Minnesota Vikings running back/kick returner Mewelde Moore.

I believe that the Steelers front office have already asked a few of their current players if they would be willing to restructure their contracts in order to free up some cap space "IF" the right free agent happens to come along.

Bottom line, the team is looking at guys to add depth and help out on ST's for cheap.
Tomlin knows he has to turn over some of the roster to get better on ST's.

Just signed him.

Steelers.com

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers added depth to their linebacker and special teams corps today as they signed free agent linebacker Keyaron Fox to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.



Fox (6-3, 235) was originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round (93rd overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech. He spent all four of his years in Kansas City, playing primarily on special teams and as a backup linebacker. In 2007, he posted 21 tackles, including a season-best 10 against the New York Jets in Week 17.



Fox enjoyed his best season in Kansas City in 2006 when he collected 52 tackles while playing in all 16 games, making four starts in place of the injured Derrick Johnson.

Very nice. He's still young. He put up some half decent numbers in terms of tackles over the last two seasons. Give him a shot. He can't be any worse.

But who needs those pointless ST players? We needed Randy Moss!!!
