Free agent OT Flozell Adams was released by the Cowboys in the beginning of April. Since then, he's received some interest from a few teams and as of last week had several standing offers.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports Adams has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Steelers.
The Steelers brought him in for a workout a few weeks ago after OT Willie Colon was lost for the season.
Adams was reportedly looking for $4 million but it's unclear at the moment if he got that.
Check out Behind The Steel Curtain for more news on the Steelers signing Flozell Adams.
The last time we heard from free agent offensive tackle Flozell Adams he was working out for the Steelers. The Steelers haven't decided on him but Adams' agent says there are four teams interested in his services, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.
Jordan Woy, agent for tackle Flozell Adams, said four teams have standing offers on the table to secure his services and the former Pro Bowler is sorting through them. Woy declined to name the teams. Several personnel directors said Adams has been seeking around $4 million on a one-year deal and we'll see if he lands a contract that large.
At this point, Adams best bet may be to wait for a training camp injury. He's a veteran and could quickly be plugged in with any team. He's among the best free agent offensive tackles available which gives him a shot at getting his reported asking price of $4 million.
The Steelers lost OT Willie Colon for the year and quickly brought in free agent OT Flozell Adams for a visit. There's no word of a signing yet but, according to NFL.com, we know what the price tag would be.
Jason La Canfora reports Adams is looking for $4 million for 2010 but the Steelers are hesitant to commit to that at this point. History would say the Steelers would stay in-house or go for a cheaper option.
Meanwhile, La Canfora also reports that the Steelers aren't the only team interested in Adams' services.
Adams visited the Steelers on Tuesday and took a physical, but he doesn't have a deal with the team. Adams' agent, Jordan Woy, told the Steelers that he's drawing interest from at least three other clubs, according to a team source.
Now he's visiting the Steelers, according to ESPN's Calvin Watkins.
The timing makes a lot of sense considering the Steelers have lost OT Willie Colon for the season with a torn Achilles.
Adams played on the left side while in Dallas for the majority of his career but he would likely move to the right side if the Steelers decide to take a flyer on him.
It's been nearly two months since the Cowboys released Flozell Adams and he's yet to sign with a team. According to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, Adams has made at least one visit.
Flozell Adams visited the Broncos recently, and the free agent tackle continues to talk with several teams.
The Broncos are in a position of need at left tackle in the early goings of the season. LT Ryan Clady partially tore a patellar tendon and his status to start the season is in question.
The Redskins were reportedly one of the "several teams" to be in touch with Adams.
The Cowboys released 13-year veteran left tackle Flozell Adams last week. Within 24 hours of his release, news broke that three teams had contacted him expressing interest.
We've identified one of those teams.
According to Ryan O'Halloran of CSN Washington, the Redskins have contacted Adams' agent.
There's no telling what level of interest they're showing in Adams but a signing has the potential to have a big impact in the NFL draft.
If the Redskins bring him in, it would seemingly relieve them of the need to draft a left tackle with the fourth pick in the draft.
LT Chris Samuels retired at seasons end leaving a gaping hole at the left tackle spot.
Though Adams is up there in age, he could be a stopgap if the Redskins have their eye on another player -- say Eric Berry -- at the fourth pick.
Keep an eye on this one. It could be interesting.
Flozell Adams may be old in the NFL world at age 34 but at least three teams think he can still play, according to his agent Jordan Woy.
Flozell Adams may not be coveted by the Cowboys anymore. But the recently released tackle still has some value in the league. According to his agent Jordan Woy, three teams have already contacted him and expressed interest in Adams for next season.
No visits have been scheduled and the identity of the teams is unknown.
Adams, while mistake-prone at times, could still be a solid stopgap for a team wishing to address another need other than left tackle in the upcoming NFL draft.
Adams hopes to play two to three more years in the NFL so some team could get a coup picking him up in early April.
SB Nation's Cowboys community, Blogging the Boys, has a wonderful piece on the release of LT Flozell Adams and S Ken Hamlin. There are quite a few good points made -- here a few of them..
On the first count, this is most likely Jerry allowing Ken Hamlin and Flozell Adams ample time to catch on with new teams before those teams fill needs through the draft. Many things are said about Jerry Jones, but one thing is definitely true, he really does care about his players and forms emotional bonds with them.
Without knowing the circumstances, it appears Jerry Jones did each player a favor by releasing them before the draft. Now they've got time to find another team before April 22nd.
Don't believe the hype when people say the Cowboys now have to draft a LT in the first-round. The Cowboys almost assuredly believe that Doug Free is their starting LT of the future.
My next question, after seeing Adams released, was if that meant a left tackle is coming in the NFL draft. Apparently not, according to BTB, and their reasoning makes sense. At the very least, Free has to be given a shot to see if he can handle the job.
But, they have more options at finding another safety than they would looking for a LT. There are RFA's they could go after, they could work a trade, or they could get one in the draft. Safeties are a much more available commodity on the market than tackles. Also, the draft is full of safeties that could go in the late-first round or second round with the real potential to step in and start. The Cowboys have options here.
Can't argue there. This is expected to be a safety heavy draft so Hamlin's release may not be too big of a deal.
Check out the full article on Blogging the Boys. Lots of great insight on these moves.
Adams, 34, was originally a 1998 second round draft pick by the Cowboys. He's spent his entire 13 year career in Dallas. He was due to make over $7 million in 2010 so the move makes sense. Plus, the Cowboys can afford to go younger with OT Doug Free.
Hamlin signed a multi-year contract with the team in 2007 and has been a disappointment ever since. The DMN weighs in on Hamlin's release.
Hamlin was set to make $5.5 million and had $1 million of guaranteed money remaining on his contract.
