Steelers agree to terms with Maurkice Pouncey

Posted by Mike Florio on July 30, 2010 2:27 PM ET

The Steelers have struggled on the offensive line of late, and they addressed their deficiencies by devoting their first-round pick to center Maurkice Pouncey.

Per a league source, Pouncey has agreed to terms, and he is on the way to camp.

Pouncey was the 18th pick in the draft. His contract became easy to finalize given that the player taken in front of him (49ers guard Mike Iupati) and directly behind him (Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon) recently inked their rookie deals.

Financial terms aren't yet available, but it's safe to say Pouncey got much more than $100,000.
