    Default Free-agent guard Pitts draws Colts, Steelers to workout

    Free-agent guard Chester Pitts worked out for two teams Tuesday in Arizona, according to his agent, Andrew Kessler, who added that his client has visits scheduled with two other clubs next week.

    The teams have asked that their identities not be revealed at this time, Kessler said. However, a source with knowledge of the situation revealed the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers attended Pitts' workout.

    The Steelers are looking for offensive line help after starting right tackle Willie Colon suffered a season-ending Achilles' tendon injury last month.

    Pitts has drawn interest from several teams throughout the offseason, including the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. Pitts is coming back from major surgery, and Tuesday marked the first time he had been able to undergo a full workout for teams.

    The eight-year NFL veteran, a longtime starter for the Houston Texans, is one of the few in-demand free agents still available. He started every game for the Texans from his rookie season in 2002 through 2008. Pitts played in just two games last season before undergoing the surgery.

    Pitts would be valuable to the Steelers based on his versitility and his good run blocking skills.

    He'd be a nice pickup. Very underrated.

    The experience definitely helps.

    What was Pitts' injury and they list him as a Guard, most times a player is far better at either Guard or Tackle

    All I could find for Pitts injury-wise was an MCL problem that required surgery.
