If we go to an offense featuring a fullback, here are some that are available. Anyone picque your interest??

LeRon McClain
Lousaka Polite
Jeff Dugan
Toby Gerhart
Owen Schmitt
Moran Norris
Earnest Graham

I know we are over the cap, but maybe one can be signed.

Some older vets with the exception of Schmitt.
Gerhart is more of a RB.

If there's any dabbling in free agency, I'd prefer a guard. We can get a decent full back in the draft in the 4th-ish round.

I would love to see a true fullback on the roster again. There was no chance of it when Arians was here but they may consider it.

You can pick one up in draft petty reasonably who can help out on special teams too. After McLains problems this past season I would steer clear of him.

Owen Schmitt will not be expensive and Toby Gerhart would be nice. However The draft would be cheaper and he starts fresh. So give me Bradie Ewing FB Wisconsin RD 4.

I think the Fullback position is one I'll be interested in watching in the combine coming up. Also the linebackers, defensive line, and offensive line.

We have a fullback it's John Clay.He and Baron Batch can shuttle or we could bring back the full house backfield.

All steelers backs are big and could play the FB role. Then they can save their picks for other areas.

I agree with you. However, If they get the Brandon Jacobs Syndrome and want to be tail backs instead of powering forward we'd have an issue. Jacobs in the end got the point and powered forward.
I would like to pick up RS/RB Isaiah Peads of Cincy

Baron Batch showed signs of being a capable blocker but I wouldn't want him as the full time lead guy. He's got talents that can be used elsewhere.

Tomlin called Hynoski and wanted to sign him but it never worked out.

i said during the super bowl that henry would have looked great in a black and gold uniform. too bad the FB is against arians religion or something.

FB's can be found late in the draft...no need to go the FA round...hell if i remember correctly ( and i know you guys will call me on it if i'm wrong :nahnah:) kreider was undrafted....

With the ACL situations, we may need a starting RB.
Not worried about a FB. We can fill that roll, we have 3 or 4 7th round picks if needed.

HYNOSKI chose The Giants because Tom Coughlin Stayed on the phone talking to his mother while he answered other calls from NFL Teams. Tom Coughlin wanted to know more about his family. So He chose the Giants, Smart kid and a Super Bowl Champion as a rookie.

Fullback out of West Virginia, walk on to the team and then became a starter in 2005. Played with the seahawks and eagles. According to his wiki, Schmitt attracted media and YouTube (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YouTube) attention in the aftermath of a game during the 2009 NFL season (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_NFL_season) during which he smashed his helmet against his head until he opened up a large gash
