Searching for a Replacement

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that unrestricted free agent Rex Hadnot visited the Steelers' offices on Wednesday. Mr. Hadnot is 6'2" tall, and weighs in at 325 pounds. He turned 26 years of age in late January.

Coming out of the University of Houston in 2004 Mr. Hadnot, was regarded by some as a "[p]hysical player with good punch . . . [e]xplosive." He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins, has been a starting offensive guard for that team since 2005, and is described in a recent South Florida Sun-Sentinel article "as the [Dolphin's] most consistent offensive lineman." Despite that, chances that he might return to Miami seem slim-to-none -- a check of the Dolphins' official roster (on their website) reveals that his name has already been removed.

Scouring multiple online sources reveals that Mr. Hadnot's name has been mentioned in conjunction with the Cleveland Browns (he reportedly visited them on Sunday), Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans (he reportedly will be visiting them on Friday), and the Seattle Seahawks.

If it's a bidding war he and his agent want they shouldn't expect the Rooney family to play that game.
