The Steelers and second-round pick Mike Adams of Ohio State agreed to a four-year contract Tuesday.

Adams, a 6-foot-7, 323-pound offensive lineman, is the fourth of nine picks the Steelers have come to terms with since the draft, joining receiver Toney Clemons, nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu and running back Chris Rainey.

Clemons also came to terms on a deal yesterday.

Adams had been graded as a first-round pick but dropped to the second round because of concerns over his character.
