The Steelers are showing interest in a defensive lineman who’s a logical fit for their 3-4 scheme.
Chargers nose tackle Cam Thomas is meeting with Pittsburgh on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
PFT’s 105th-ranked free agent, the 27-year-old Thomas started 10 games for the Chargers in 2013. The 6-foot-4, 330-pound Thomas, who’s been a backup for most of his NFL career, has ideal bulk to play in the middle of the Steelers’ 3-4 front.
The Steelers are in need of defensive linemen. They have lost nose tackle/end Al Woods (Titans) and defensive end Ziggy Hood (Jaguars) since the beginning of free agency.
