The Steelers have brought another local product home.

According to Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com, the Steelers have agreed to a one-year deal with former Cardinals running back La’Rod Stephens-Howling.

Stephens-Howling is a capable third-down back and return man, who adds a different element to the Steelers current stable of big backs.

The University of Pittsburgh product, who visited earlier this month, joins Pittsburgh-native Bruce Gradkowski, who signed earlier this offseason to back up Ben Roethlisberger.

They’re also still talking to Ahmad Bradshaw, who was just cleared medically.
