The Steelers came to terms with first-round draft pick Santonio Holmes shortly after 5 p.m. today and the wide receiver was expected to arrive in training camp in Latrobe some time tonight.

Holmes will sign a five-year contract with financial terms not immediately available.

He was the last of their nine draft picks to come to a contract agreement. The Steelers today also announced they have agreed to terms with third-round pick wide receiver Willie Reid. Financial terms of that deal also were not available.

The Steelers also released former Pitt and Perry High School quarterback Rod Rutherford.

Alright, so now hes signed and we just need to him to perform. He needs to get his act together and be ready to play some ball. Hopefully he shows what an athlete he really is this season.

Glad to have him in camp on time, the last thing he need was to get another strike against him. I'll give him the benifit of the doubt and see what happens from here on in...
