Default Two more FAs visit

Steelers play host to two more free agents
Friday, March 14, 2008
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers continue to entertain free agents in an attempt to bolster their special teams and offensive line, bringing in former Carolina Panthers center Justin Hartwig and Tennessee Titans backup safety Donnie Nickey today to meet with the coaching staff.

Hartwig, who started 15 games last season for the Panthers, was released Tuesday as part of a shakeup of Carolina's offensive line. The Panthers signed Hartwig to a five-year, $17 million contract as a free agent two years ago.

Nickey, who grew up in Akron, Ohio and played at Ohio State, has been a backup in five seasons with the Titans. However, he is considered a special-teams standout who once angered quarterback Vince Young because he hit his teammates too hard in practice.

Oh boy, he might not fit in here. He might upset Hines Ward and a few fans like Anthony Smith did last season because of his aggressive nature in TC and practice.

Ok...it's time to either fish or cut bait with Starks with the cap space he is using up right now. If we can land these two guys, who can help us...let's do it.

I don't mind if they pick up a couple more FAs as long as they are not expensive and they cut some dead weight (Starks and Willie Reid who will never amount to anything) to keep us under the cap. I thought the Fox signing was very good because they got him cheap and KC fans said on their board they are sad to see him go.
