Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network is reporting Saturday morning on Twitter that the Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to trade running back Jonathan Dwyer.
Dwyer, the Steelers sixth-round draft pick in 2010, is considered to be the more marketable running back on the roster currently, but is also only under contract for 2013 after signing a one-year restricted tender in the amount...
In a pre-taped segment that aired on ESPN before the NFL draft, comedian Frank Caliendo broke out his impression of NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., and he absolutely nailed it.

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert never likes to refer to drafted players as needs. Instead, he likes to call them wants. On Friday, it is quite obvious that needs is indeed the correct word to use as the Steelers drafted Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell in round two of the 2013 NFL draft and Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton in the third round...
According to several media reports, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed former Arizona Cardinals running back LaRod Stephens-Howling to a one-year deal on Friday.
