Steelers Bring In Offensive Lineman

The Steelers on Tuesday had offensive tackle Todd Fordham in for a look as a possible replacement for Wayne Gandy. Fordham spent his first six seasons in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars, making 30 career starts.

The 6-5, 315-pound Fordham started nine games at right tackle for the Jaguars in 2002 and 12 games at left tackle in 2001. The Steelers are looking at him to give them another veteran option at left or right tackle after Gandy signed with the New Orleans Saints Sunday.

As of now, Oliver Ross is listed as the team's starting left tackle. Third-year man Mathias Nkwenti will also get a shot at the position.

If that fails, the Steelers could move right tackle Marvel Smith to left tackle - his college position - and Ross to right tackle.
