    Two free agents visit...

    Thursday, March 08, 2007

    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers entertained their first two unrestricted free agents today when Seattle offensive lineman Floyd Womack and Baltimore wide receiver Alex Bannister paid a visit to their facility on the South Side.

    Punter Andy Lee, a restricted free agent, is the only other player to visit the Steelers since free agency began Friday. The Steelers signed Lee and await word whether his team, the San Francisco 49ers, will match the offer.

    Bannister stands 6 feet 5 and made the Pro Bowl as a special teams player in 2003. Seattle drafted him on the fifth round in 2001 from Eastern Kentucky and waived him in June. Baltimore signed him last Dec. 19.

    Womack, nicknamed "Pork Chop" by his mother, is a 6-4, 330-pound versatile lineman who has played every position except center. Seattle also drafted him in 2001, on the fourth round.

    Colby Bockwoldt became the first linebacker in free agency to visit the Steelers when he arrived at their UPMC facility on Pittsburgh's South Side this morning.

    Bockwoldt, 25, started all 16 games for the New Orleans Saints at outside linebacker in 2005 but he was waived before last season. Tennessee claimed him off waivers and he played primarily as a backup and special teams player for the Titans, where he started one game.

    Bockwoldt, a seventh-round draft pick from BYU in 2004, became an unrestricted free agent when the Titans did not issue him a qualifying contract offer last week that would have made him a restricted free agent.

    He became the fourth player to visit the Steelers in free agency. A fifth, Tampa Bay offensive lineman Sean Mahan, is scheduled to visit this afternoon.
