CAM THOMAS RUMORS & GOSSIP
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.

Cam Thomas May Be A Contingency Option To Start...
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Gerry Dulac on Sunday that former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Cam Thomas was signed to play defensive end.
