    Read Jim Wexell's thoughts on the Pittsburgh Steelers here in the Daily Buzz.

    (Discuss Jim's blog entry here on the message board.)

    TUESDAY, JULY 26

    6:15 A.m.:The clock struck midnight and the Steelers, according to a league source, signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Terrence McCrae of Ohio University and nearby Connellsville High School.

    McCrae is a 6-2 5/8, 194-pounder who set season (9) and career (19) records for touchdown receptions at Ohio. In the last two seasons, he caught 70 passes for 1,050 yards and 18 touchdowns.

    Last season, four of his nine touchdowns came on fade routes in the end zone, so he'll give Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers quarterbacks a tall red-zone target at training camp next month.

    For his career, McCrae caught 85 passes for 1,197 yards and 19 touchdowns. As a senior at Connellsville, McCrae caught 7 touchdown passes and intercepted 7 passes. At his pro day, McCrae ran a 4.45 40, had a vertical jump of 35 inches, and ran a 6.82 in the three-cone drill, but benched 225 pounds only 8 times.

    According to at least one Internet site, the Steeles have also signed massive South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders (6-5 1/8, 270) and fireplug Southern Miss nose guard Anthony Gray (5-11 1/2, 338).

    I've watched the talented Saunders on a number of occasions before Coach Steve Spurrier kicked him off the team prior to last season and would compare him to former Steelers TE Eric Green.

    Gray is no surprise to readers here. He was one of the team's pre-draft visitors whom I'd predicted would become the team's fourth or fifth-round pick after a source with the team told me he'd "take him in the second." If the report proves correct, Gray might replace 35-year-old free agent Chris Hoke on the roster and would make for a sad day in Pittsburgh.

    Well, it's possible to find talent in the darnedest places. With the new Cap numbers possibly requiring a little judicious pruning/re-juggling and some much needed talent re-evaluation on the horizon, this is going to be a very interesting few weeks. I'd like to see some of the weak of the herd culled.

    We've been pretty good at finding contributors from the UDFA pile recently. Legursky, Ramon Foster, Ike Redmen to name a few.

    Certainly you can find them but until you do... this is a period where you are really hoping for the best, slinging poor and seeing what sticks.
