'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2011
 

The Steelers have agreed to terms with veteran free agent tight John Gilmore.

The 6-foot-5, 257-pound Penn State graduate started 11 games for Tampa Bay last year and caught 13 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown.

Gilmore, 31, played six years for Chicago and the past three with the Buccaneers.

The Steelers lost backup free agent tight end Matt Spaeth to Chicago last week.

Gilmore will compete with David Johnson for the backup spot behind Heath Miller.
