*Finally, some Steelers news! Pittsburgh has signed former Tampa Bay OL Sean Mahan to a 5-year $17 million deal. The deal includes a $4 million signing bonus. Mahan is intriguing because of his versatility. He started 8 games at center for the Bucs in 2004, 16 games at right guard in 2005, and 8 games at left guard last year. Mahan is expected to compete with Chukky Okobi and Kendall Simmons for the vacancy left by Jeff Hartings' retirement. More on this move later.
