Steelers Bring In Tackles Ray Willis & Jamon Meredith For Work-outs

Mike Tomlin said during his Tuesday press conference that the Steelers would work out a few tackles today and Scott Brown now reports via Twitter that Ray Willis and Jamon Meredith are being worked out today.

Willis was selected by the Seahawks in the 4th round of the 2005 NFL Draft and played his college ball at Florida State. He started 26 games for the Seahawks at both right guard and right tackle over 5 seasons. He measures in at around 6 foot 6 and just over 300 lbs. He signed with the Dolphins after the lockout ended, but was released before the season started.

Meredith was drafted by the Packers in the 5th round of the 2009 NFL Draft and played his college ball at South Carolina. He ended up on the Packers practice squad in 2009, but was signed off of it by the Bills where he played under Steelers offensive line coach Sean Kugler. He was waived by the Bills during the 2010 season and has had short stays with the Lions and Giants.

  • We need o-line help, but I am not sure these scrubs provide anything but depth.

  • Joe D

    Here is something to look forward to….

    The 2012 Draft is loaded with CB’s and OT’s. Hopefully a 1st round CB and 2nd round OT.

  • John B

    dont forget to throw a DT in there and a Saftey soon.

  • Steve Duncan

    We need NT and S help more than either of those. We have young potential at OT and CB. Nothing at either of the other spots.

  • Hiddenaway

    What about Steve McClendon? He’s young potential NT. Mundy looks like he could start for Clark in a few years. Gilbert is now a starter and we have no real OL talent to speak of right now.

  • Steve Duncan

    McLendon is maybe as good as Hoke, though I hope he surprises. Mundy will never be a starter IMO, and we still need to replace both Troy and Clark in the next 3 years.
