The 24 year old Wells, who was recently let go by the Arizona Cardinals, partly because of a right knee problem, reportedly has a "bad wheel" according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Twitter.

Over the course of the last several weeks Omar Khan has cleared $23,578,750 off of the Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 salary cap with just four contract restructures and one contract termination.

It’s been reported by numerous outlets today that Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is in Boston today visiting with the New England Patriots. Earlier this week, the Steelers tendered Sanders a lower than expected offer. Should Sanders sign with the Pats or any other team for that matter it would bring the Steelers a third-round compensatory draft pick.
Now that Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is busy making a visit to the New England Patriots, several people are wondering if the organization will try to retain their former third round draft pick, should he sign an offer sheet, and if they do, where will the extra cap space come from to do that?
First off all, the Steelers need to deem if...

It seems as if we have conflicting reports about Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who visited with the New England Patriots on Friday.

Jason La Canfora reports that the Jets have reached an agreement with former Steelers OL Willie Colon on a one-year deal.
New Jets GM John Idzik has done pretty well today adding two players with good upside for a reasonable price. We still haven’t seen the figures for Colon’s contract, but it’s doubtful he’ll receive much in terms of guarantees.
Colon, 29, looks to be a...
