The team on Thursday came to terms with Flozell Adams, a former member of the Dallas Cowboys who is a force on the line at 6-7, 338 pounds. Nicknamed “The Hotel,” Adams is a five-time Pro Bowl lineman.
It’s unknown whether Adams will play on the left or right side for the Steelers. He will add depth to a squad that lost OT Willie Colon to a torn Achilles heel in early July. Colon will miss the entire season.
Adams is a natural left tackle, which means if he plays there the team would put Max Starks on the right side. Either way, it’s a move that the team needed to make to add some needed size and ability to the line, as Adams is a player that can walk right in and help from day one.
