Per Rotoworld

Speaking about the Steelers' 2012 running game, GM Kevin Colbert said "that group of players didn't produce the way we anticipated they would."
"Where we were in running game last year was indicative in the talent at the position," Colbert said. Where the Steelers were was 26th in the league with 96.1 yards rushing per game. A running back corps "led" by Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer and Ike Redman wheezed to 3.7 yards per carry (tied for 29th). Impending free agent Mendenhall is fully expected to walk.

So how would you all feel about him in a rotational role with Doug?  He was a good back at Illinois and before this year was pretty decent in Pitt.
I'd love to hear people's thoughts, and other ideas on upcoming FA's that could fill that role.

Considering that Blount might not be around next year, he could be a decent replacement for him

Considering that he blew off a game this year because he wis pissed with his playing time I'm gonna say .....NO

Are you nuts, keep this guy as far away from one buc as possible. He pulled a no call no show for a game!!!

If he was any good, the Steelers wouldn't be letting him walk. Pass!!

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Dom might be able to get a late draft pick for Blount, and send him to Chip Kelly land.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"
