Cam Thomas scheduled for visit with Seahawks

The Seahawks were able to re-sign defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin before the start of free agency, but Rubin’s partner on the interior in 2015 won’t be back with the team.

The Chargers signed Brandon Mebane to a three-year deal on Wednesday to end his nine-year run in Seattle and open up a spot in the defensive line rotation with the Seahawks. A former member of the Chargers appears to be an option to fill it.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that defensive lineman Cam Thomas will visit the Seahawks on Thursday. Thomas spent the first four years of his career with the Chargers before playing in Pittsburgh the last two seasons. Thomas appeared in every game for the Steelers over that span — he’s played every game over the last five seasons — and had 29 tackles while making 10 starts.

The Seahawks are also reportedly meeting with defensive end Chris Clemons about returning to the team as they explore options for their defensive line in 2016.

    Good… He fooled the Steelers into thinking he might be a viable NT option and rode the bench for two years, maybe he’ll convince Seattle as well.

    Another Colbert blunder goes on the clearance rack. Although lots of ex-Steelers seem to thrive. Rod Woodson and Emmanual Sanders come to mind. I guess being away from those nasty fans does wonders for your career.

    Seattle… please sign him. Please. Please. Please.

    Thank God.

    Please dont leave The City of Whiners without a contract.

    Our young friend who is obsessed with that quarterback from down south and also obsessed with the team that wears black and gold seems to be getting a bit desperate. While the GM of that team that wears the purple and black continues to make awful decision after awful decision, the GM of that team that wears the black and gold just keeps crushing it. I love the way this season is shaping up. That team that wears the purple and black will be languishing in the cellar for the foreseeable future.

    Ohh that’s great, y’all can have him. The Steelers thought he could be a placeholder until Stephen Tuitt got up to speed and he couldn’t even do that. He actually played better last year than the previous year just by not playing as much. I’m surprised the Ravens aren’t looking at him though, he’d be a big upgrade for that sorry team and their fans.

    Buyer beware, this guy sucks! Seattle should pass.

  8. steelcurtainn says: Mar 10, 2016 9:31 AM

    Maybe Cam should go to the ravens. Seems he’d be a good fit there. Both are past their prime.

    They’re interviewing him in Pittsburgh?

    Thank you for mentioning 2 free agents in the last 20 years who had decent careers after Pittsburgh. Really great point. Also in case you forgot, the Steelers also happened to manage to capture 2 Lombardis during that time as well.

    His career has not been that strong up to this point, but the Seattle coaching staff does something few others can. They actually develop people. They look at potential, focus on strengths, and train & develop people to be better than they ever have before.

    Pete has been there 6 years, and has 5 years in the playoffs, 2 Super Bowl trips, and 1 Super Bowl championship. It’s just possible that he and his coaching staff know what they’re doing.

    It seems the Steelers fans do not think highly of this individual.

  13. xsm941f says: Mar 10, 2016 10:30 AM

    The Steeleers probably paid for his flight. Go. Please

  14. redwards60 says: Mar 10, 2016 10:31 AM

    Hey Tebowed…

    (1) You need a new handle, its now obsolete.

    (2) Woodson was a perennial All Pro in Pittsburgh first, before leaving late in his career in free agency.

    (3) Sanders has done quite well in Denver and now has his SB ring, but the Steelers are happy they chose to re-sign Brown instead. Now they have Wheaton and Bryant as well.

    (4) Cam Thomas was and is a low performance DL – if he signs with Seattle or anyone else for that matter, Steelers fans will rejoice.

  15. TebowedOutOfThePostSeasonAndNeverToReturn says: Mar 10, 2016 10:35 AM

    Hmmm.
    Woodson career 87-03 No Lombardis for Steelers
    Sanders career 2010-present No Lombardis for Steelers

    Pittsburgh lost a SB when Sanders played. Are you now giving yourself Lombardis for losing? LOL

  16. williamshatnerstoupee says: Mar 10, 2016 11:01 AM

    Our young friend who is obsessed with that quarterback down south and also obsessed with the team that wears black and gold. The team is killing it in free agency, while the team that wears purple and black are sinking faster and faster every day. Fourth place finish for that team.

  17. RegisHawk says: Mar 10, 2016 11:20 AM

    Please dont leave The City of Whiners without a contract.

    He’s in Seattle, not Santa Clara.

  18. thesteelhurtin says: Mar 10, 2016 11:24 AM

    You do realize Woodson was named to the 75th Anniversary team as a Steeler right? You do realize Woodaon was the Steelers honorary captain against the Ravens in the 08 AFC championship game right? You do realize after the game he said he will always consider himself a Steelers. Talk about a slap in the face to a team you won a super bowl with.

    At least Pitt doesn’t have to cut key players like baltiless to overpay for a incompetent Qb who got schooled by the likes of noodle arm and kap to name a couple like baltiless did.what a joke of a franchise.carry on

  20. trailerparkking says: Mar 10, 2016 12:09 PM

    Tebow is feeling a little scared and jealous. I would too if my GM kept signing and over paying 1st round busts like Monroe and Watson. I get it, the Ravens are desperate for offensive talent especially when they see the Bungals and Steelers light years ahead of the with no signs of closing the gap.

  21. dirtyback says: Mar 10, 2016 12:54 PM

    Let Thomas walk and re-sign McLendon if possible. McLendon was far better than Thomas last season.

  22. stillers213 says: Mar 10, 2016 2:08 PM

    At any rate, the Steelers will be looking for more depth on the D-line in the draft at some point.

    1. Corner
    2. Free Safety
    3. D-lineman

  23. intellectualpenury says: Mar 10, 2016 3:12 PM

    Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas > Cam Thomas

    *************
    Not from the 1 yard line obviously. How in the world do you not go ballistic when Bevell calls a play in the biggest game of games that Bevell knows the opposing DB has seen 1000 times in practice when that player was a former QB?

    That qualifies for the HOF level of insanity. Only if the game was fixed would that play be called to throw a pass to your #5 if not #6 receiver on the depth chart.

    And the fact Bevell has been allowed to remain with the team because no other team wants Bevell is just more insanity.

    ***********************************************************************

    Where do you come up with this crap?

    Woodson was in the Pro Bowl almost every year when he played with the Steelers. Didn’t seem to be struggling that much to me. Only reason you even mention him is because he’s one of the few examples your limited Raven homer knowledge will allow you to produce given that he played for Baltimore for a couple seasons.

    As for Sanders, when you draft and develop guys like the Steelers have managed to at the WR position over the past 10+ years, you’re not going to keep them all. Their receiving game hasn’t exactly fallen apart since he left.
