Steelers claim former Jags running back


At a time when plenty of Steelers fans would like to see their favorite team trade for Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, they’ll have to settle for another guy who recently toted the ball while wearing teal.

The Steelers have claimed running back DuJuan Harris on waivers from the Jags.  The Steelers announced the move today.

Harris generated 42 yards on nine carries last season.  He also returned 14 kickoffs.

He becomes the seventh running back on the roster, joining Rashard Mendenhall, Ike Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, Baron Batch, Chris Rainey, and Jason Ford.

So, basically, it won’t be easy for Harris to stick around four days from now, when the rosters drop from 75 to 53.
