There is a new hotel going up in Pittsburgh, and it's name is Flozell Adams.

According to , the Steelers have reached a contract agreement with the free agent left tackle. Terms of the multi-year deal are not yet known.

The only question that remains is, will Adams replace Max Starks on the left side, or will he play on the right?

Max Starks was originally a right tackle when the Steelers had Marvell Smith on the left side, but with the many injuries Smith suffered, Starks was forced to switch positions, and learn how to play on the left.

Now that the Steelers have a true left tackle on the roster, will Starks get switched back to his original position?

This also means that the competition on the rest of the line is going to be interesting. Adams and Starks are going to be playing the tackle positions, while the left guard position is set with Chris Kemoeatu. With first round draft pick Maurkice Pouncey certain to be getting playing time at either guard or center, will Trai Essex or Justin Hartwig lose playing time?

Either way, with the Steelers being more determined to be successful at running the ball, Flozell Adams will be a nice addition to a line that needed help learning how to run block.
