The Steelers have reached agreement on a three-year contract with seventh-round draft pick Dallas Baker, a wide receiver from Florida.
Baker, 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds, will receive a signing bonus of $39,750 and base salaries of $285,000, 370,000 and $460,000.
The pace has also quickened on negotiations for a long-term contract extension for safety Troy Polamalu. The Steelers are hopeful an agreement can be reached with Polamalu by Sunday's 4 p.m. reporting deadline to St. Vincent College for training camp or soon thereafter. Polamalu is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2007 season.
Baker is the fourth of the Steelers' eight draft choices to reach a contract agreement...

Hopefully this is the first of many more contracts to come for him, with us. I really like this pick. If he works out like we hope he could be one of the steals of the draft !

I really think that he will make the roster.
He gives us size at the position and will allow us to be able to get rid of Wilson, if he shows enough in training camp and the five preseason games.
