Free agent S/CB/ST Michael Thomas is visiting the Steelers on Monday.

Thomas has experience at all defensive back positions and was extensively used on special teams in Miami. The Steelers are looking for competitors for safety snaps after releasing FS Mike Mitchell and third safety Robert Golden.

He's a past All Pro STer. Good to see KC and Tomlin are at least trying to fill out the bottom of our roster with talented STers.

Edited for additional info....he tore his PLC about 5 months ago. Curious to see if he checks out medically.

Good Special teams player.
2017 - 11 tackles in 13 games
2016 - 19 tackles - led NFL
2015 - 14
2014 - 10

Nice playoff game vs. Steelers in '16

Looking at all these ST guys to replace Golden...why not just keep Golden?

Don’t you know? The reason we were embarrassed at home last January against the Jaguars was because our ST gunners suck out loud. CHAMPIONSHIP.

I am thinking if they don't get an upgrade they bring back Golden.

Golden was undrafted. He turned out to be a great ST'er. The same can not be said about his time on defense. Why pay someone good money for a secondary position on the team. It looks like they're signing Burnett. A guy that can actually play safety. I think they bring in the usual UDFA's from this year's draft class and retain a few guys that can play Golden's role on ST's while paying them rookie minimum. That's how the Steelers do business. Living up to the MO 'we do what we do'.
