Steelers strike deal with Mike Adams

Despite their experiences with a certain former Ohio State player with a propensity to “wake and bake,” the Steelers picked in the second round of the draft former Ohio State tackle Mike Adams, who reportedly failed the drug test at the Scouting Combine.

The Steelers have now signed Adams to a contract.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported the deal Tuesday night on Twitter, adding that there was no deferred signing bonus or other protections tied to possible future marijuana use.  Adams sought out the Steelers and persuaded them to put the lineman back on their draft board.

Adams is the fourth Steelers draft pick to sign, adding to a rash of rookie signings that are occurring far earlier than usual, thanks to the new, simplified rookie wage scale.

    it aint crack, relax. santonio’s drug use wasnt the reason they traded him. it was about getting something in return for a guy they knew they wouldnt re-sign because of the money he’d be asking for in contract negotiations.
    glad we got him signed and cant wait to see how he turns out.

    Dude ain’t very bright. Every college player knows going into the Combine that there’s gonna be drug testing so this “bright boy” does drugs and fails the test.

    At least he’s going to the right team. After such a boneheaded mistake he should fit right in nicely with guys like Roethlisberger and Harrison. The only question left is which one of these guys will be Moe, which one is Larry, and which one is Curly. Too bad Whines Hard was kicked out. They could have Shemp around as well…

    This guy was a good draft pick by the Steelers (unfortunately) and I think he’s gonna be prove to be a steal for them. He just needs to stay focused on football

    Steelers turned their god-awful line around into one of the bright spots of the youngest offense in the league in just 3 short offseasons, and they didnt sign a single outside free agent. Next year they address the final pieces of defense and that, my friends, is how you reLOAD.

    Can’t stand the team, but live the pick. When Adams came back from suspension lay year, the Buckeye offensive line was drastically better. At least the Bengals drafted D line to try to counteract the Steelers O line draft. Should be some good battles.

    Way to go, Mike. Now earn your spot on the line and never look back.

    This guy has BUST written all over him! How’s the herb up there in Pittsburgh? I’m sure he’ll be arrested for it in no time!

    Mike, the Left Tackle job is yours for the taking…for the next dozen years.

    Be worthy!

    Watched this guys play just about every snap in college. He was not the same player at the combine. Ohio State is as dirty as they come. He was probably juiced to the gills in college.

    Has bust written all over him.

    @ilivincin: Going to *love* watching your shiny new D-line and our shiny new O-line go at each other. I don’t care if they are turning this into a passing league, I still think the battle is won and lost in the trenches!

    I hope this guy gets a chance to start this year. make that offensive line STRONGER

  17. ravenator says: May 9, 2012 2:18 PM

    dontstabmeray, yup I guess that’s how I’d define someone who swept your defense…pathetic ignorance will not help your cause. Sorry, Mike Adams will definitely be a bust. Too slow off the snap, tape never lies.

  18. dontstabmeray says: May 9, 2012 2:49 PM

    Tape never lies, your are right. I’m still searching for tape to show the Ravens have won a super bowl in the last 10 years. Can’t find it…..still searching……oh I found something….the tapes of the Steelers going to 3 super bowls and winning 2 of them. ravenator go back to your ravens message threads and continue to hype up next year—have fun with Suggs on the sideline.
