    I'm all for kicking the tires on Heyward-Bey. Still young, has speed...worth a look in a new environment.

    Brown - Wheaton - Burress (bring him back on the cheap - he wants to be a Steeler) - Moye and Jasper Collins out of Mount Union. They're good to possibly great you bunch of chicken littles....

    Heyward Bey could fill the role Washington and Wallace had for us, ben loves a guy to take the top off the defense

    He didn't play last year, but I think it would be a no lose situation to bring Kevin Walter into camp.

    Blount has his moments. Sneaky explosive for his size, not the most physical runner though. Offers nothing as a blocker or receiver though, which is ok because bell is a 3 down back

    Agreed. I thought Dwyer found his role here last year as a short yardage guy and a fill-in thumper. Blount can do that and more. Would love this signing.

    2014 NFL free agency: LeGarrette Blount to visit Pittsburgh Steelers

    BY JOSH SANCHEZ



    LeGarrette Blount joins Maurice Jones-Drew as the Steelersí targets at running back.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers flirted with veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew during a two-day visit earlier this week but Jones-Drew ultimately left the Steel City without a contract. Now, rather than showing interest in a running back on the decline, the Steelers are expected to visit with one who is coming off his most productive NFL season.

    According to the National Football Post, the Steelers will be meeting with New England Patriots free agent LeGarrette Blount on Sunday night

    Throughout the first week and a half of the free agency period, Blount has received very little public interest. There are reports the Patriots could still be interested in re-signing him, but first they will need to see what develops with the Pittsburgh visit.

    Pittsburgh is looking for a No. 2 running back to serve as a complement LeíVeon Bell, and Blount could certainly fill that roll.

    He is the physical style of running back that Steelers fans have been clamoring for. Of course, he will need the Steelers line to improve their game by opening running lanes because Blount hasnít shown tremendous ability to create his own space.

    There are a few other teams believed to have interest in Blount, but the Steelers are the first to show that interest publicly.

    From what I have seen of Blount... he could potentially be a "1-A" type of back...

    While it would be a great signing, I am doubtful that he ends up with the steelers.
