Flozell Adams visited the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, but other teams also are in the mix for the free-agent offensive tackle's services, according to his agent, Jordan Woy.
Baldinger: Adams still solid
The Steelers have nothing
to lose by signing Flozell Adams. He knows how to play. Adams is limited, because no one has the same legs after 12 years in the league, but he could be
a good insurance policy.
There are certain players that Adams would face that he could still dominate. He has problems with younger, quicker players who can really bend and move, they give him trouble. But the bigger, stand-up guys, he can still wire them up.

Colon's agent, Joe Linta, confirmed Tuesday an NFL.com report that his client will miss the 2010 season after having surgery on his Achilles' tendon. According to Linta, Dr. James Bradley will perform the operation Wednesday, and Colon will need a recovery time of 9 to 12 months.
Colon is eligible to become a free agent after the season, and Linta said Bradley told him "this is a routine Achilles surgery and will not impact Willie's future as a player."
Colon isn't the only Steelers offensive lineman who's scheduled to have surgery Wednesday. Director of football operations Kevin Colbert said Tuesday in a statement that rookie tackle Chris Scott, a fifth-round draft pick, will have an operation on a foot injury he suffered during a workout at the University of Tennessee.
