Does Mewelde make the team in 2011? Do you think he's got enough left in the tank to contribute next year or do the Steelers bring in another back, making Mendenhall & Redman the 1-2 punch and use a draft pick or free agent as a change of pace?
Moore proved in 2010 that he can still be a factor, especially late in the year and in the playoffs. He is still as good as anyone in the league in blitz pickup and has a knack of getting the first down on those toss sweeps, swing passes, or dump offs in the flat. He is a free agent and won't garner much in the way of offers from other teams, atleast not for big money. As far as I know he's pretty happy in Pittsburgh and wants to return in the future. So he won't cost much to bring him back but is it time to cut the ties, or atleast decrease his role to make way for Redman?
I really think Redman is up to the challenge next year. Up to this point Moore has been the one to spell Mendenhall at various times in the game, but I think Redman is up for the task and has earned the chance to take over that role. Mendenhall is the complete package with speed, power, agility, and quickness all rolled up into one. Redman has the power and the ability to find the small gap and get that first down. I think he could excel with more playing time.
