"Something we're going to explore, said Tomlin," via a report by Bob Labriola on Twitter. "Not going to move too far from what guys are capable of doing."

Mike Tomlin Says Read-Option Offense is ‘Flavor of the Month,’ Feels It Could Fizzle Out Like Wildcat

The read-option offense took off in 2012 behind the phenomenal play of quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson.
