Kevin Dockery was signed today by the Steelers.

Here are the stats on Dockery:

He could be someone that challenges for the NB spot in the secondary pretty soon. He's got experience, playing in the Super Bowl for the Giants in 2007.

I don't know how much Dockery or Macho Harris will play on Thursday night. They might be able to go out late in the game and get some reps in but they have no idea what the playbook is or how the Steelers run defense.

I am interested to both of these guys, neither one is a slouch by any means and depending on how injuries shake out the rest of preseason one or both of these guys could be on the roster.

I just can't shake my horrible feelings about the past performances of Gay...at this point Im sorry but anyone is better than this dude....Sick of him getting lit up, we will never survive if he's a out deep...and we have an easier schedule than most.

With the signings of Dockery and Harris I think Gay will be cut and brinkley and allen will be on the practice squad so it will look like this
Taylor/lewis LCB McFadden/butler RCB
nickleback
brown/dockery
practice squad Cortez allen/Niles Brinkley

Sounds about right.

The steelers kept l0 DB's last year. 6CB 4S. All are back except A. Madison. So at least one spot is open.

Not sure how to read all these signings.

They've reached the bottom of the barrel...These are desperation signings...

+ Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen

so really none are "open"

Ideally what i want to see if they keep 10 would be

CB:
Ike Taylor
Byant Mcfadden (just cause we need him)
Curtis Brown
William Gay
Macho Harris
Donovan Warren (FS?)

SS:
Troy Polamalu
Ryan Mundy

FS:
Ryan Clark
Crezdon Butler (CB?)

PS: Cortez Allen

People aren't concerned about the secondary just because of the first preseason game. They are concerned because of how they struggled last year and because of the same unit returning for 2011. The young guys aren't anywhere near ready to step in yet so it's going to be the same group for atleast the first half of the season.

Perhaps some of the new additions and young players can work their way onto the field as the year moves on.

They struggled against the elite QBs and most secondaries do in the NFL.....
