    Team president Art Rooney II seconded coach Mike Tomlin's sentiment that the Steelers want RT Flozell Adams back in 2011.
    ESPN's Adam Schefter speculated via Twitter days ago that Adams could be among the veterans released this week. The Steelers will hang onto him with Willie Colon's future in doubt. It's a good bet that Adams will still be asked to restructure.

    Steelers tendered QB Dennis Dixon, OT Tony Hills, CB William Gay, and TE Matt Spaeth as restricted free agents.
    Dixon and Hills were both drafted in 2008 and are legitimate restricted free agents with three accrued years. Dixon will return to compete with Byron Leftwich for the backup job in training camp. Hills hasn't been able to get on the field, which is a bad sign considering he plays a position at which Pittsburgh annually struggles. Spaeth and Gay are four-year vets.

    Steelers signed offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to a one-year extension.
    The 58-year-old Arians took over as Pittsburgh's playcaller in 2007. In the ensuing four seasons, his offenses have improved from 17th and 22nd in his first two years to seventh and 14th over the past two, despite Ben Roethlisberger's four-game suspension to open the 2010 campaign. Arian catches flak for "straying" from the Steelers' historically run-first ways, but Mike Tomlin is more concerned with Lombardi Trophies than Rushing Titles.

    Steelers OLB James Harrison is undergoing his second back surgery in two weeks Wednesday.
    Harrison's initial surgery removed a piece of herniated disc off a nerve that bothered him throughout the season. Wednesday's procedure is a "follow up and continuation" of the first surgery. "They got rid of something, and found a little more," Harrison's agent tells ProFootballTalk.com. The follow-up procedure is only expected to delay Harrison's recovery by one month, putting him on schedule to resume training by May.

    Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey is due a $5 million option bonus later this month.
    Pouncey will eventually see that check, just not until the new CBA is finalized. Teammate James Harrison is in a similar situation, though his bonus is for a "mere" $900,000. Colts DE Robert Mathis has a $1 million payment that will be delayed.

    Hines Ward confirmed that his mid-February knee surgery was "just a light scope."
    Fans of middle-brow reality television can breathe a sigh of relief that Ward's knee will be fine for Dancing with the Stars later this month. Steelers fans can rest assured that the knee will be back to 100 percent long before training camp.

    Hines Ward will join the cast for ABC's 12th season of Dancing with the Stars.
    Forming boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard, model Petra Nemcova, and original Karate Kid Ralph Macchio are three of Ward's 10 competitors this offseason. Ward underwent arthroscopic surgery to his left knee as well as his left thumb three weeks ago. His participation in Dancing with the Stars is a sign that his knee will be just fine going forward.

    Steelers extended a first-round restricted free agent tender to RT Willie Colon.
    Colon had already compiled four years of service before sitting out the 2010 with an Achilles injury. He's likely to be unrestricted under the next CBA, which would render the Steelers' tender meaningless. The Steelers are expected to allow Colon to test the market.

    Steelers LE Ziggy Hood is recovering from surgery to clean out bone spurs in his ankle.
    This is a routine surgery that shouldn't cost Hood any portion of offseason workouts, in the unlikely event they are any. In a breakout second NFL season, Hood racked up 20 tackles and three sacks, not including two in the playoffs. He'll enter 2011 training camp as the favorite to start over Aaron Smith.

    This holding pattern that is free agency this season really sucks. I feel better about the Steelers handling it better than most teams. I gotta believe they about have their offers ready to be submitted to the players agents. Hopefully they retain the targeted players and this CBA situation doesn't screw up their draft plans.
