Steelers team president Art Rooney said earlier this offseason that the team wanted tackle Flozell Adams back on the team in 2011.
The feeling is mutual.
“We will need to talk to Pitt [once the lockout is over] and determine his role and if it will be with the Steelers,” agent Jordan Woy said.
Translation: Flozell wants to start. We don’t blame him after a rock solid 2010 campaign. Due $5 million next year, there was some thought the Steelers could ask Adams to take a paycut if he was being brought back as a backup.
We’d bet on Adams staying put. The Steelers could draft Adams’ replacement next week, and let Adams walk after 2011. It appears that the team is going to let tackle Willie Colon leave via free agency.
