Versatile Steeler Thomas grateful for new opportunity

Steve McLendon didn't answer the question, but it was more like he couldn't answer it about new teammate Cam Thomas. “I would rather not say what he brings because I want people to see what he brings,” McLendon said.

Cam Thomas May Be A Contingency Option To Start

This offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have done well in recouping their free agent losses pretty much across the board, for which the front office deserves a tremendous amount of credit.
