    Steelers meet with running back Kevan Barlow

    Steelers meet with running back Kevan Barlow
    Friday, May 04, 2007

    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Free agent running back Kevan Barlow visited the Steelers at their South Side headquarters today.

    Barlow, a star at Pitt, has played with the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets in the NFL. His best season was 2003 with the 49ers, when he rushed for 1,024 yards on 201 carries, a 5.1 yard average. Last year for the Jets, he gained 370 yards on 131 carries, an average of 2.8 yards. The Jets cut him in February.

    Barlow, a graduate of Peabody High School, is seventh on Pitt's career rushing list, with 2,438 yards. He scored the final touchdown at Pitt Stadium Nov. 13, 1999, when the Panthers upset Notre Dame, 37-27.

    The Steelers have said they need more depth at running back. They did not select one in last weekend's draft, but signed two rookie free agent running backs later.

    This makes sense if we can get him at a cheap price, he's got experience and would definitely add some depth to our stable of backs. If he's healthy I'd be up for giving him a shot.

    Yeah I agree TG, especially if the price is right, and I think it could be. Its always nice getting a hometown kid.

    I know that Barlow is listed at 6'1" and 234lbs but by no means is he a powerback alot of you have been hoping for. He is close to the same style of running as Davenport.
    He avg. under 3 yds per carry last season with the Jets. Barlow never impressed me much as a pro.

    The Steelers need another RB, so if the price is right bring him in. If Willie went down with serious injury the Steelers would be screwed.lol So depth would be nice.

    If you can't see pass Duce Staley the second there's problems. We had the chance to have him like 3 yrs ago and he decided to sign(again)w/49'ers. Played 1 yr and was gone. didn't last more than a year w/jets.
    I like Barlow but his days are soon over,so i can't see him doing too much more to help us other than a fillin until the next guy. But if the price is right "Come on down."

    I am not sure about Barlow, he used to have some talent, not sure what happened though. If the price is right, it might be worth taking a shot on him. Are there no other free agent running backs that want to play for the future super bowl champs?
