PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Steelers continue to make moves as the second day of training camp gets underway at St. Vincent College in Latrobe.
This morning, the team released veteran offensive tackle Flozell Adams. He started all 16 games in 2010 after Willie Colon went down with an Achilles injury.
Adams, 36, was in the second year of a two-year deal with the Steelers and was to earn $5 million this season.
The move was made possible after the team agreed to terms with free agents Colon and Jonathan Scott late Thursday night.
Adams, a five-time Pro Bowler, spent the first 12 years of his career with the Dallas Cowboys.
Colon and Scott can officially sign with the team Friday evening, but can’t practice until next week, leaving the Steelers thin along the line when practice begins Friday afternoon.
