In this bizarre intersection of NFL business, with the top free agent signing on the same day as the top pick in the draft, it’s fitting to also have some of the news that accompanies the launch of training camp.

In Pittsburgh, receiver Hines Ward has opened preseason practice on the Physically Unable to Perform list.  Guard Chris Kemoeatu and tight end Eugene Bright also are on the PUP list.

The Steelers have announced that six of seven draft picks have agreed to terms (including first-rounder Cameron Heyward), along with the signing of Ike Taylor, Shaun Suisham, and Willie Colon and the release of Flozell Adams, Max Starks, and Antwaan Randle-El.

    he should be put on the “PUPL”list… the Physically Unable to Play LEGALLY list

    They should put Roethisberger on the NMSR list. N for Now, M for Married…well, you can surely figure out the rest on your own.

    Did he twist an ankle or fall down and break a hip on the heel-to-toe line walk sobriety test?

    Browns could use Randle-El. He is an upgrade over Robskie, Cribbs, and MasQ.

    Those 2-3 times a year whoopings laid on the Ratbirds every year starting to sting huh?

    He’s on the PUP list for the thumb injury, which sounds silly, but it would be a big deal for a receiver.

    Wish we’d do something interesting … in free agency, I mean. Our current players have provided enough entertainment for this off-season.

    “Our current players have provided enough entertainment for this off-season.”

    …couldn’t agree more. Ringling Brothers must’ve stopped in Pittsburgh for the summer.

    it is known, he had surgery on his hand…why is this not mentioned. making it sound like he is out of shape or because of his DUI. just tell the whole story!

    Did Hines sprain his drinking wrist?
