Report: Steelers To Workout G Donald Thomas & QB Jarrett Brown
PFT is reporting that the Steelers will bring in free agent guard Donald Thomas and former West Virginia quarterback Jarrett Brown for workouts according to league sources. Thomas was drafted by the Dolphins in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft and played college football at Connecticut. He made his NFL debut on September 7, 2008 against the New York Jets, but suffered a Lisfranc fracture and was subsequently placed on injured reserve. Thomas started for the Dolphins at right guard in 2009 for the first half of the season, but was benched later in the year and released prior to the start of the 2010 season. Brown signed a free agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers after going undrafted in April and was later signed to the 49ers practice squad after cut downs, but was released on September 8th. No signing appears imminent for either player and it is not uncommon for teams to bring in players for workouts throughout the season for future consideration should injuries occur.
