Mike Adams, Steelers Agree To 4-Year Deal

The Pittsburgh Steelers have already gotten some of their rookies from the 2012 NFL Draft under contract and have added another one on Tuesday evening as the team has signed second round pick Mike Adams.

Adams new deal is for four years, as are most other rookies per the new collective bargaining agreement. Adams, who played offensive tackle for Ohio State, is the fourth Steelers rookie to come to terms on a contract. Many experts had mocked Adams to the Steelers in the first round, until he popped positive for marijuana at the NFL Combine.

Adams fell to the Steelers in the second round, being the second offensive lineman drafted by the Steelers in the 2012 NFL Draft. He played left tackle for the Buckeyes and many believe he will wind up being a right tackle in the NFL, but will help the Steelers regardless of where he plays on the line.
