I keep hearing about the Steelers signing LeCharles Bentley – from everywhere but here in Latrobe.
I'm not saying the rumor doesn't have some legs, but many times, things like this get started by an agent fishing for a contract offer for a client.
I'm not saying the Steelers couldn't use Bentley, particularly if Chris Kemoeatu continues to miss time. But I'd be surprised if the team panicked and did something. It's just not usually how the Steelers work.
If they were going to sign Bentley, they already would have done so and had him in camp from the beginning.
This morning's practice was in full pads and featured plenty of work on the running game.
James Farrior was out this morning, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious. Lawrence Timmons moved into the starting lineup, with Larry Foote sliding over to Farrior's spot.
Timmons really looks at home at inside linebacker.
