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.
