The Steelers, who have hosted free-agent running back Beanie Wells already but are unlikely to sign him, expect to have Ahmad Bradhsaw visit this week, though the meeting would be largely to get a handle on his medical situation.
The former Giants standout, with a lingering foot injury, may not be ready to play until deep into the offseason, and the Steelers have some interest, sources said, though there is no rush to sign him right now. Pittsburgh lost former starting back Rashard Mendenhall to Arizona in free agency and is looking for reinforcements to complement Jonathan Dwyer, who re-signed there.

[QUOTE=hawaiiansteel;556238]a guy like Marcus Lattimore who may miss part or all of next season would still make a lot of sense.[/QUOTE]
NOW...If the sign Bradshaw I would be ok with the Latimore pick in the 5th back. I would be a no to Latimore as the "Rookie" answer with Dwyer, Redman, & Batch.
[QUOTE=supersteeler;556236]When healthy he is a good back, he has his age going for him and a productive player. If the Steelers can get past his recent injury and he works out well the possibility exists he could be a Steeler soon.
My question would be, if we do sign him would RB still be in their draft plans in the first four rounds?[/QUOTE]
You still draft one but it may be in the 4th back now.
[QUOTE=Rara;556227]What makes you think him?[/QUOTE]
reasonable cost for a guy of that quality...
