Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer showed up for training camp as a lean, mean, fighting machine. It wasn’t enough to get him a spot on the 53-man roster.
Cut after signing a one-year, $1.323 million tender offer as a restricted free agent, Dwyer is lining up workouts this week, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Dulac pegs the Browns and Ravens as possible candidates, given that Baltimore has only two running backs and the Browns are thin behind Trent Richardson.
But any potential buyer for Dwyer should beware. Though he talked a good game when camp opened, Steelers coaches didn’t believe Dwyer failed to take his job seriously enough, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Of course, it could be that those same coaches hope Dwyer doesn’t come back to haunt the team that gave up on him.
