Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports as late as Tuesday, Aug. 22, the Pittsburgh Steelers were trying to acquire RB T.J. Duckett. They were offering a fourth-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons for Duckett. Pittsburgh felt Duckett could be a back who would help the Steelers replace RB Jerome Bettis. Atlanta thought it could get more back than what the Steelers were offering and, in the end, the Falcons turned out to be right.
