NFL Free Agency: Pittsburgh Steelers sign Cam Thomas


 

On Thursday, a report surfaced that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be welcoming in current free agent and former San Diego Chargers’ defensive tackle Cam Thomas.

Thomas clearly liked what he saw and heard in Pittsburgh, because, according to his agent, David Carter, he has signed with the Steelers.

 

Thomas was originally selected by the Chargers with the 146th overall pick in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

The former North Carolina Tar Heel played in just six games as a rookie, but gained regular playing time in his second season. Thomas has played in all 16 games in each of the last three seasons.

Last season, Thomas made 23 tackles and had an interception.

The signing makes a lot of sense for the Steelers. They have already lost Ziggy Hood, who they once viewed as a very promising young player at one time, to the Jacksonville Jaguars, making depth along the defensive line a concern.
