Default Mark Tauscher to the Steelers?

Pashos signed with the 49ers...the only other legit O-linemen that I see out there is Tauscher.

Mark Tauscher is 6'3 315 lbs and can play OT and OG. This is the guy that I hope Tomlin will pursue.

He made the University of Wisconsin-Madison team as a walk-on, was drafted by the Packers in the 7th round....yet earned a starting spot early in his rookie year. He is a fighter and has played with a chip on his shoulder for years.

I like this guy as a Vet backup...What thinks the steeler nation?

Who among the 53 would you cut and do we have any cap room left to sign him?

this. Tauscher is great, but we probably wouldnt, and shouldnt. I'm surprised nobody's picked him up yet.

Just basing this on Tomlins expressed desire to add some Vet depth to the O-line.

Quote:
...the roster could get another adjustment soon because the team is in the market for a veteran offensive lineman -- preferably, a tackle/guard -- to add some experience to the backups, none of whom have played in an NFL game

....Tomlin kept nine offensive linemen, even after guard Darnell Stapleton was placed on injured reserve last week, but of some concern is none of the four backup linemen has ever played in an NFL game. That includes tackle Tony Hills, the No. 4 draft choice last year; first-year center/guard Doug Legursky and rookie guards Kraig Urbik and Ramon Foster. The Steelers, though, could add another if they see a veteran they like on the waiver list.

....Tomlin acknowledged he is "not comfortable" with the lack of experience among his backup linemen....

I am not sure how Tomlin would address it, to be honest, but I think the obvious course would be to shuffle a player to the PS and cut a bubble player from there.

In answer to the cap room question...Pashos just signed a one year contract with the 49ers for the bargain price of $2 mil.....I think we could swing that.

Well if we could swing under the cap then it would be a good move. After all of these signings I don't know how much cap room we have left.

Actually, I think Hills is just a solid punch away from being a good OT in the NFL. He got beat by Everette Brown on a spin move because he leaned on Brown. If he just keeps a solid base and punches with those long arms, then that spin does nothing.

Hills just needs a bit more technique, but he has progressed big time from last year.

As for Tauscher, I think you could cut Ramon Foster and probably relegate him to the practice squad. Essentially Urbik and Foster will not dress on gamedays unless injuries happen.

As of 9/6/09 the Steelers 2009 salary cap total is at about 6.75 million dollars under the cap.

I read from Dale Lolley's blog I think that they're looking for a DB for the 8th PS spot. Maybe that means they'd cut one of the 10 they kept to put an extra OL on the 53.
