PITTSBURGH -- Levi Brown failed to live up to his pedigree with the Arizona Cardinals. The winless Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping a change of scenery might help Brown turn his career -- and Pittsburghs sagging season -- around. Both teams announced Wednesday that the Steelers have acquired Brown for a conditional draft pick. The 29-year-old Brown never appeared comfortable in Arizona after the Cardinals selected him with the fifth overall pick in the 2007 draft, two spots ahead of Adrian Peterson. As a rookie, he started at right tackle for Arizonas 2008 Super Bowl team, then was moved to left tackle. But he never became the dominant blocker the Cardinals envisioned. After missing all of 2012 with a torn triceps, Brown was labeled an "elite" tackle by new coach Bruce Arians in the off-season. But Arians quickly lost faith in Brown as the big lineman struggled against the pass rush off the edge. He gave up three sacks to Robert Quinn in Arizonas season opener at St. Louis. "I dont think it comes as any surprise that Levi Brown was not living up to our expectations," Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said. Brown will be replaced by Bradley Sowell, claimed off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 1. Sowell played in 10 games for Indianapolis as an undrafted rookie last season, when Arians was offensive co-ordinator, then interim head coach. Arians said he expected "no drop-off at all" at the position. "The problems that have occurred I dont think will get any worse," Arians said. "Hopefully theyre going to get better, not only in pass protection but in the run game." Keim said the Cardinals had been looking to move Brown since the first week of the season. "At the end of the day, when you realized that he was not in our long-term plans," Keim said, "instead of belaboring the point and keeping him on our roster, it was just in the best interests of the organization to move and move on as quickly as possible." Regardless of Browns spotty record, the winless Steelers (0-4) desperately need help along the offensive line. Pittsburgh is off this week before travelling to New York to face the Jets on Oct. 13. While coach Mike Tomlin declined to detail what kind of role Brown would play if he joins the team, Tomlin allowed theres a chance for Brown to make an immediate impact. "Ill wait until I get an opportunity to meet him and work with him and let that be the determining factor," Tomlin said. "The great thing is that we obviously not only have a full week of work ahead of us, but we also have a Monday bonus day which we intend to take full advantage of." Center Maurkice Pouncey is out for the year with a right knee injury and second-year left tackle Mike Adams has failed to adapt to the left side. Adams played well in spots at right tackle as a rookie before being moved to left tackle in the spring. The adjustment has been rocky at best. Adams surrendered 2 1-2 sacks to Minnesota defensive end Jared Allen in a 34-27 loss to the Vikings in London last weekend and was briefly replaced by Kelvin Beachum. Offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley, who coached Brown while serving in the same position with Arizona in 2008, declined to talk about the trade, but acknowledged the line play in Pittsburgh hasnt been anywhere close to acceptable. The Steelers have allowed 15 sacks through four games. Only Miami, Jacksonville and Cleveland gave up more during September. "Its not just left tackle, its across the board," Haley said. "Weve got to be better everywhere. Weve got to be better getting rid of the football. Weve got to be better blocking, the backs, everybody. When youre getting pressure, it takes everybody, and everybodys got to do a better job." The Steelers have serious salary cap issues, though Brown does come at a bit of a discount. Pittsburgh will pick up the remaining $3.6 million of Browns contract. He will count for a $4.2 million cap hit for the Cardinals in 2014. Brown figures to step in for Adams rather than move over to right tackle, where Marcus Gilbert has shown signs of progress. "I think the coaches feel comfortable with where Im at now, so they dont want to make a move now that Im getting better every week," Gilbert said. "So, I guess Ill be sticking to the right side right now. "Everybodys looking to get better and to improve our offence. We know that theres going to be changes, but we have to keep getting better and try to turn this thing around right now." The Steelers released cornerback Isaiah Green to make room for Brown. Denard Robinson Jaguars Jersey. The native of Creston, B.C., previously served as manager of high performance, director of mens national teams and most recently as senior director of hockey operations and mens national teams. Aaron Colvin Jersey.C. -- Lewis Ratcliffe scored twice -- including the winner in overtime -- and added five assists to lift the Vancouver Stealth over the Colorado Mammoth 14-13 in National Lacrosse League action on Friday. http://www.thejaguarslockroom.com/Youth-Tashaun-Gipson-Elite-Jersey/. Halak is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The Islanders now have a two-month window in which to negotiate a new contract with the keeper before he is free to negotiate with the other 29 NHL clubs. Davon House Jaguars Jersey. Tyson Barrie scored in the final minute of regulation, and then scored again in the shootout, leading Colorado to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Brandon Linder Jaguars Jersey. “That was one of the goals we wanted to create is when teams come into this building theres no more of this two points, kiss your relatives and go home,” said Randy Carlyle following a fifth straight victory at the Air Canada Centre on Tuesday night. MIAMI -- LeBron James says his new protective mask is hot, uncomfortable and prone to fogging up. Plus, as teammate Dwyane Wade pointed out, it looks weird. So James is in the market for design suggestions. "Ive been talking to Marvel Comics for the last couple of days, and DC Comics, to try to come up with one of the greatest masks of all time," James said with a chuckle Wednesday. "So well see what happens." James spoke after trying out his new mask for the first time in practice. He plans to use it Thursday when the Miami Heat play the New York Knicks. The game will be the first for James since he broke his nose last Thursday in a victory at Oklahoma City. He and his mask took part in contact drills Wednesday, and coach Erik Spoelstra was encouraged by James progress. "Hell give it a shot Thursday," Spoelstra said. "He was able to go through today without any hiccups. But he also didnt take a hit today." Given James aggressive style of play, hes bound to receive an inadvertent blow to the face sooner or later. Thus the mask. "It lessens the impact," said James, who wore a mask 10 years ago to protect a broken cheek. "You can still feel it, because the nose is still tender. But it definitely lessens the pain." James had removed his clear mask by the time media were admitted to the gym for the end of practice, but teammates provided a description. "He looked like every other player in a mask -- it looks weird," Wade said. "He looks like the LeBron that wore a mask the first time, only about 30 pounds heavier, a little more muscular, a little less hair." Said Shane Battier with a grin: "As long as No. 6 is in uniform, he looks all right to me." James was on a roll when hurt. On Thursday hell try for his fifth consecutive 30-point game, which would be the second-longest such streak in Heat history. The Heat have won five consecutive games and trail Easstern Conference leader Indiana by one game.dddddddddddd But theyve been prone to stumble against weak opponents, and their next three games are at home against team with losing records -- the Knicks, Magic and Bobcats. Nine of the Heats 14 defeats, including one against the Knicks, have come versus teams that are below .500. "You dont want to lose to the good teams. And you dont want to lose to the teams that arent as good," Wade said. "So then you would be 82-0. Youve got to lose to somebody. You cant play your A game for 82 games, so you have some of those moments. It happens to every team. Were no different." Lately the two-time defending NBA champions have been consistently on their A game, in part because of stout defence. They held Oklahoma City to 81 points, which tied the Thunders season low, then held Chicago to 79 in a victory Sunday as an antsy James watched from the bench. The injury-plagued Knicks have lost their past three games, and in their season of upheaval, the latest jarring development came Tuesday. Point guard Raymond Felton was arraigned on two felony weapons possession charges following an early-morning arrest. After going 54-28 last season, the Knicks are 21-36. "They havent forgotten how to play," Spoelstra said. "Theyve been injury-riddled all year long, and thats tough to deal with. That adversity coming into our game is irrelevant. Im sure theyll be ready." The Knicks split two games earlier this season against Miami, and theyre one of the few teams with a player who can match James basket for basket. Carmelo Anthony has scored more than 40 points in three of the past four games. James said hes sorry to see his friend endure such a difficult season in the standings. "I want him to win, and I want him to succeed," James said. "Obviously he has been playing great basketball, but I definitely dont like seeing him lose the way theyve been losing."
