    Steelers Claim RB DuJuan Harris

    The Steelers claimed running back DuJuan Harris off waivers today from the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team announced today.

    Harris saw action in five games during his rookie season in 2011. He finished the 2011 season with 42 yards rushing on nine carries, and added one reception for four yards. Harris also returned 14 kickoffs for 308 yards (22.0 avg.)

    A first-year player from Troy University, Harris originally signed with the Jaguars as a rookie free agent on July 26, 2011.

    Maybe a practice squad candidate. Now that Clay is gone the RB spots are already spoken for on the regular season roster.

    checked his draft profiles... everything i read said only negative was his size... 5-7 197, short but not teeny-tiny. Good hands, good speed (4.37-4.44), tougher runner than his size is and "always falls forward."

    Could this be a future 3rd down back?

    to be honest, i think they needed to sign a body just to take handoffs for this final game. Redman likely wont play. Dwyer may get a few carries but should be limited to the first series if Redman doesnt play. Rainey isnt a 20 carry guy in this league. So you have Batch and Ford to play at least 3 quarters! They needed a body!

    2 Full Time RB's and 2 Part time RB's is enough for a preseason game...

    &

    I just dont see the logic in making a waiver claim on someone who will be cut later on that week



    I think Batch is gonna go to the PS and this kid given a shot (mendy, dwyer, Redman, D. Harris)

    yeah yeah Rainey... But hes gonna fill McClusters shoes and do both WR/RB, obviously the special package guy

    I really doubt Batch makes the team now since Harris was signed........Mendenhall, Redman, Dwyer, Rainey all will make it........
