    the steelers had another player a few years back that had awesome physical attributes and athletic prowess but very little football experience after a few years of indepth coaching out came a pro bowl offensive lineman namely carleton haselrig... Too bad this story doesn't have a good ending just when he was coming into his own the demons took over and ended his career... who knows this guy could be good under the right coaching... the steelers have taken shots on guys with less talent before

    The Steelers are making a change to their practice squad today. They are signing rookie defensive tackle Al Woods and releasing rookie defensive end Doug Worthington, their seventh-round pick. Woods was a fourth-round draft choice of the New Orleans Saints from LSU, the 123rd pick in the draft. The Saints traded away a sixth-round pick and their fourth-rounder to Arizona to move up seven spots in the fourth round to take him.
    He’s listed as 6-4, 314.

    Its unfortunate for Worthington, but great for Woods and us. Great to add some talented youth. I read that we are tied for the second oldest team in the NFL.

    heres a blib from NO last April

    "A lot of times when you draft a guy locally you've got to make sure they're grounded because they've got a lot of family members who are fans and can be a distractions," Elias said. "Al is so grounded and so focused, it's a perfect fit because of what he does on the field and the maturity he has off the field.

    "He just loves the whole community, the team and the city. His best football days are ahead of him. He's very, very excited and very emotional about it. He loved Coach Johnson when they worked him out. He's ready to go to work."
