Mewelde Moore is a free agent this year and recovering from a sprained MCL that he suffered against the 49ers in the regular season. Since he’s primarily a 3rd down back / change of pace, he’ll have some competition this training camp. Baron Batch said his recovery is going “Fantastic” according to a tweet he put out with us this weekend. Assuming he’s ready to go and back at full strength that should be a decent battle to watch.
If it gets that far though. They could just not bring back Moore and let Batch take over that job. The Steelers don’t just generally hand over a position to someone without some competition in the mix. I would bet at this point that both will be on in camp and then fight it out for the regular season duties. I also say this because of Mendenhall’s injury they might want some additional insurance.
Who would you rather have as the 3rd down back next yet?
