Default steelers sign the 1st draftpick

well other than texans m. williams who had a deal in place the night before the draft. last year i think we were the 1st to get someone signed and i believe had 4 of the 1st 10 picks to sign of the whole league. steelers f.o. wastes no time.

One step at a time Cleve. One Step at a time. I was hoping Santonio was already signed but we gotta start somewhere.

Hopefully he can take Barrett Brooks' roster spot.

I was pretty impressed with Essex when he was called on last year... hopefully Colon adds another solid player to the line.

Santonio NEEDS to be signed before camp opens...I think it will literally make all the difference. Wasn't Troy Williamson a hold out for almost the whole training camp for the Vikings last year? His numbers suffered accordingly...

im trying to remember how our recent 1st round signings went. i think heath was one of the 1st 1st rounders to sign. ben signed a few days after training camp openend. and im pretty sure polamalu was in on time. santonio has some exra motivation to sign early with w. reid right behind him.
