The Steelers need running back depth for the first two weeks of the regular season. Running back Jordan Todman needed a job.
And so the Steelers have signed Todman, who became a free agent after being cut Saturday by the Panthers.
To create a roster spot for Todman, the Steelers cut cornerback Doran Grant, who as of Saturday had made it onto the 53-man roster, to create a roster spot for Todman. (Linebacker Anthony Chickillo was released to make room for waiver-wire pickup Caushaun Lyons, who had been released by the Buccaneers.
Another cut will be made once running back Le’Veon Bell’s two-game suspension ends. Chances are it will be Jordan Todman.
Until then, Todman has a chance to get some reps and catch some attention for the Steelers in games against the Patriots and the 49ers.
