Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Cam Thomas could be a cap casualty

cam thomasThe Pittsburgh Steelers have been pretty hardcore on their veterans this year. The team has not re-signed James Harrison, they cut Brett Keisel and are trying to get Troy Polamalu to retire.  Well according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Gazette, defensive tackle Cam Thomas could be next up to be released. 

Cam Thomas could be another casualty. The Steelers signed him to a two-year, $4 million contract in free agency last season and he did very little despite starting eight games. He had 19 tackles, half a sack and six pressures, and was eventually bumped from the starting lineup by Keisel, then Tuitt.

This would leave just one possible backup for now, and that is massive tackle Dan McCullers. This means expect the Steelers to be looking at defensive tackles in the near future.
