    Steelers | Could show interest in Jonathan Stewart

    The Pittsburgh Steelers could show interest in trading for Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart if he becomes available this offseason.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned this and he will help out for a 1 year deal and personally I think he is a better rb then Mendy. He also has home run speed to boot and wouldn't mind them signing him to a 3 to 4 year deal and parting ways with Mendy.

    I wish they'd let the young guys go play for once. All this speculation gets old. We are a sleeper at best for this deal.

    The Steelers will not be trading/ signing anyone this year, hell they're fixing to lose Cotchery!

    I don't see this happening at all. I wouldn't be against it but with the cap situation as it is right now there's no way to make more moves without doing more restructures.

    He is a good back, and I like his breakaway speed that would compliment our stable of power backs but it's a pipe dream at this point.

    Redman is not a feature back, Dwyer? who knows if he'll show up in shape, Clay? not a feature back and not even really that good, Batch? two knee injuries and has never played a down in the NFL.

    I think we would be wise to consider an option with the potential as Stewart. He's a powerful, shifty and explosive runner.

    Does the Steelers salary cap number currently include Mendenhall? Because he will obviously be on the PUP list for 6 games to start the season. Would it be an option for the Steelers to just IR him? What's Mendenhalls salary anyways?

    Because the big need isn't RB, it's the line. Fix the line and the backs we have will be more than adequate.

    agree, the biggest FA moves the steelers make is holding on to what they have/had

    Yes, the Steelers NEVER make moves in FA. BUT, this year is a bit different. I would be surprised if we didn't add another back to the mix of what we have now. I think it would be a mistake.

    RB not the position it once was, given the overall shift in the NFL to a passing game. Look what NE got to the Superbowl with: a Jet's reject who probably couldn't start for most NCAA Div. I schools: Danny Woodhead.

    A more intriguing prospect than Stewart is Brandon Jacobs, although the Steelers seem to be somewhat overloaded with power backs at the moment.
