Whimpey, now playing Offensive Tackle

Joey Porter's Pit Bulls is always interested to see what gems may emerge from the list of undrafted free agents (UFAs) signed immediately after each year's draft. This year, clearly, we have some winners.

With the memory of the departed offensive lineman Guy Whimper ("Abdullah the Butcher") still fresh, it is encouraging to see the Steelers's 2015 crop of UFAs includes a tackle by the name of Kevin Whimpey, 6'5", 295, out of Utah State. With a name like "Whimpey," he's got to be tough.

So, we figure, Guy may have gone out with a Whimper, but Kevin's going to enter minicamp with a bang. Nothing whimpy about this offensive tackle.

Here is the complete list of this year's UFAs signed by the Steelers:
