Jason Capizzi-T- Steelers Jan. 2 - 12:05 pm et
   
  Steelers signed OTs Jason Capizzi and Jeremy Parquet off their practice squad.

And Pittsburgh now has depth at tackle. Parquet was on the Rams' active roster earlier in the season. Capizzi is an undrafted rookie from Indiana (PA).

Unfortunately, there aren't many Pro Bowl tackles floating around the waiver wire at this time of year, so I didn't expect much else.

I wouldn't discount Capizzi simply because he hails from a smaller school.  I still think that's part of the reason we cut Hank Fraley a few years ago after his impressive preseason showing, and we'd probably kill to have him back now.

I don't care if Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black. Good for them. But that doesn't change the way I feel about them. The longer we keep looking at guys like Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith as "BLACK HEAD COACHES" as opposed to just "coaches" the longer race will continue to be a problem. --DoctorJohnnyFever

I think the only thing about Fraley is that he's more of a pass blocker than a run blocker.  It was one of those practice squad moves that didn't work out in the long run, although it did for the Iggles and subsequent teams.

Kinda like James Harrison did for the Steelers.

Capizzi was a final camp cut at Latrobe.  At least he might remember the playbook.
