Steelers offseason struggles continue

The Pittsburgh Steelers probably can't wait for the 2010 season to start so that they can end a fairly devastating offseason.

First there was Santonio "Up in Smoke" Holmes off to the Jets for a fifth round pick. Then Ben "You Can't Prove it Beyond a Reasonable Doubt despite a 742 Page Police Report" Roethlisberger. He's about as innocent as O.J. Simpson.

Fast forward to earlier this week when the team's starting right tackle and arguably their best offensive lineman, Willie "President of the Big Ben Posse" Colon went down with a season ending Achilles injury.

Now, fifth round draft pick and fellow offensive tackle Chris Scott broke his foot and is on the shelf for 3 months and could start the season on the PUP list.

Word is the team brought in former Cowboy Flozell Adams to kick his tires a bit and see if he could help fill in some ailing O-Line depth. With all of the fall out on the Steelers' offensive front, Adams and his agent probably just upped the ante.

Maybe the Ravens should feign interest and throw their hat in the ring for Adams too, just to make that acquisition even pricier for Pittsburgh.

After all, all is fair in love, war and the AFC North.
