Hat tip to SteelerinChicago for posting the story in the 'Signings' Diary, but I'll mention it on the main page as well. ProFootballTalk is reporting that the Steelers and Holmes have reached an agreement for the 1st round pick out of Ohio State. His agent, Joel Segal, is apparently waiting until tomorrow to announce the details of the contract. Why? I don't know. According to PFT, who we agree is a not-always-reliable source of information (but who truly is in the business of rumors), his agent was eager to shift his undivided attention to the ongoing contract negotiations of his blue-chip client, Reggie Bush. You'd think if he truly wanted to move onto the Reggie Bush negotiations, they'd just get the announcement out of the way today. Who knows.Check out the ongoing diary on the right for additional signing info you may have missed.
