Steelers interested in RB Ahmad Bradshaw, sign RB/KR LaRod Stephens-Howling

Running back is a position on the mind of every Steelers fan this weekend. Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27 and Isaac Redman @ired33 are just not going to cut it, so the Steelers will be looking to upgrade through the draft. But not only through the draft. According to's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers are "interested" in signing former Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who just recently received full clearance to participate in offseason workouts. He underwent surgeries on his feet during the offseason.
The Steelers also signed a running back on Friday, LaRod Stephens-Howling @LS_H36, to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Analysis:

Stephens-Howling has third-down abilities and actually set a career-high in carries last season with 111. But he will see most of his action, much like in years past, on special teams as a returner. Bradshaw could probably be had cheaply with all of the well-known concerns about his feet. But his chances of landing in Pittsburgh may depend on what the Steelers do in the draft. There is no doubt that drafting a running back is high on their to-do list.
