Former OT Adams Signs With Pittsburgh



    Former Cowboys' tackle Flozell Adams has finally found a new home, signing a multiple-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers today, according to multiple reports.

    Adams was released by Dallas in April after spending 12 seasons with the team, five of which ended in Pro Bowl appearances. At the time of his release, he was the longest tenured Cowboy, but Dallas's belief in Doug Free as the future of the left tackle position--and certainly that the move would save a hefty chunk of change against the cap--precipitated his ouster.

    The details of the deal have not yet been released.

    However, Adams figures to start at one of tackle spots for the 2008 Super Bowl champions. The Steelers' starting right tackle, Willie Colon, went down for the season with a torn Achilles earlier this summer, which seemed to spur on the team's interest in "The Hotel" in the first place.
