A PS eligible guy with measureables. Why not ?

The Steelers actually did that in 2015. His name was Fitzgerald Toussaint. Amazingly, the vast majority of those types of players don't work out.

Pretty much exactly my point.

The Steelers have massively failed to address the RB spot effectively for this offense for 5 yrs and counting. Why not at least make better efforts or try other options ?

This hasnt been working

2012 8-8 Dwyer 623 2TD Redman 410 2TD
2013 8-8 Bell 860 8TD Dwyer 197 0TD
2014 Playoff loss Josh Harris 9/25 0TD Ben Tate 5/19 0TD
2015 Playoff loss Fitz Tousaint 12/39 1TD
2016 Playoff loss DWill 14/34 1TD Bell 6/20 0TD

Good point. Maybe they should draft a guy? Perhaps in the 3rd round.
I'd like to see them sign a FA with some experience as well. Then maybe bring in a few UDFA running backs. Perhaps get some other practice squad FA's as well.

Actually, they shouldn't bother, because I'll probably end up bitching that they didn't select my preferred player.

I was going to say "when are you going to start?", but this was good.
