Stephens-Howling visiting the Steelers today
Posted by Darin Gantt on April 3, 2013
The Steelers are hosting some free agents today, but not the kind that will make the fanbase sit up and take notice. Or even wake up, really.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the team is hosting Arizona running back La’Rod Stephens-Howling, along with 49ers linebacker Tavares Gooden and Texans guard Antoine Caldwell.
Of the lot of them, Stephens-Howling is the most interesting, since he’s unlike the rest of the backs on the Steelers roster at the moment. He’s more of a third down back/returner, and would fill the role they envisioned for the released Chris Rainey.
The Pitt product has been a solid special teamer and part-time player for the Cardinals.
Does anyone remember that nice 73 yard TD that Stephens-Howling scored against the Steelers back in the 2011 season?
yes, like the article stated he could fill the role they originally envisioned for the since-released Chris Rainey.
