The agent for Anthony "Booger" McFarland said the free-agent defensive tackle's visit with the Steelers went well but that an agreement on a contract between the two sides has not been reached.

"The visit went extremely well in Pittsburgh and he was ecstatic when he got back," Karl Bernard said.

Bernard said a number of teams have expressed interest in the 6-foot, 300-pound McFarland.

McFarland has played eight seasons in the NFL and he and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin were together in Tampa Bay from 2001-05.

McFarland, who helped the Colts win the Super Bowl in 2006, missed all of last season because of a knee injury.

Bernard said he is ahead of schedule in regard to his rehabilitation and that McFarland may be 100 percent for the start of training camp.

In other Steelers news, the team has signed long snapper Greg Warren to a three-year contract.

Warren, who has played in 48 consecutive regular-season games, had been a restricted free agent.
