The Standard is The Standard: Free agency, roster transactions and compensatory picks

Patrick Smith

Thumbs up for a few roster transactions this year, thumbs down for a few players who left. Neal Coolong and Lance Williams give a cursory overview of the Steelers' unprecedented action in free agency this year.

BTSC Managing Editor Neal Coolong and Steel Curtain Radio host Lance Williams met Wednesday evening to highlight an unprecedented run through free agency from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Thumbs up for the release of LaMarr Woodley, and a nostalgic thumbs-up for the decision to let Jerricho Cotchery walk (although the pair was split on that one). A consensus thumbs-up was given on the decision to let Ziggy Hood walk (especially considering they didn't get his first name right), which made them realize, for the first time, the Steelers currently have two defensive ends named Cam.

Twin Cam or Half Cam? Is that even a concept?

Listen in as Coolong and Williams go over the moves in free agency as well as provide a quick run-down of where the Steelers stand heading into the draft - including the disbursement of compensatory picks which were given out earlier this week.
