Steelers Steelers sign 2 picks, not Polamalu

Friday, July 25, 2003

By Ed Bouchette, Post-Gazette Sports Writer

Two draft picks came to contract agreements with the Steelers yesterday, but it appears their first-round choice will not report to training camp with the rest of the team by 6 p.m. today.

Second-round pick Alonzo Jackson and fifth-rounder Brian St. Pierre agreed to terms yesterday and will report today to St. Vincent College in Latrobe.

Omar Khan, the Steelers' chief negotiator, and agent Marvin Demoff were talking late last night to try to work out a deal for safety Troy Polamalu, the club's first-round draft choice, but it's not likely an agreement will be struck in time for him to be in camp today.

Jackson, a linebacker from Florida State, came to terms on a four-year deal that will pay him $2,413,000. It includes a signing bonus of $1,043,000 plus annual salaries of $225,00, $305,00, $380,000 and $460,000

St Pierre, a quarterback from Boston College, agreed to a three-year contract worth $1,018,500. It includes a signing bonus of $108,500 plus annual salaries of $225,000, $305,000 and $380,000.

In a roster move, the Steelers released wide receiver Phil Braxton of West Virginia and picked up wide receiver Lamar Slade of Pitt.
