The Steelers are moving quickly to replenish their backfield, before someone else had a chance at their target.
The move makes sense after La’Rod Stephens-Howling was lost for the year with a knee injury, amid a generally shabby offensive performance. They were without injured rookie LeVeon Bell, and ran 15 times for 32 yards against the Titans.
But Dwyer might have had more suitors this week anyway. He worked out for the Giants, who should be looking to add to the backfield, if only to send a message to fumbler David Wilson.
