Steelers will host free agent DL Cam Thomas Friday

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Steelers have their second reported visit scheduled with a defensive lineman. Cam Thomas will visit with the Steelers Friday.

The Steelers are actively seeking a defensive lineman, tough to argue that. After losing Ziggy Hood and Al Woods to free agency, they have meetings set up with free agents Alex Carrington and now, according to Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette, Cam Thomas, Friday.

The Steelers are still looking to replace multiple players, having released LaMarr Woodley (who just signed with the Oakland Raiders) as well as the defensive linemen. Trying to be cap-conscious, they signed free agent safety Mike Mitchell to a 5-year, $25 million deal that's short on guaranteed money. Neither Carrington nor Thomas should be expected to sign for significant deals, although Carrington has been linked to the Browns and Titans as well.

Pittsburgh needs to continue building defensive depth, not just to replace the bodies they lost, but to add some actual talent to a unit that sagged statistically, particularly against the run.
