    Dwyer would be an upgrade to Bolden...I think.

    McDonald is a little undersized but his pro day numbers were very impressive, he put up 36 on the 225 bench press, he never really received a lot of opportunity with the Bengals, then moved on to Seattle where he saw some action over the last 2 season, he could fit in a penetrating DT role here.

    The other player that peaks my interest is Josh Bellamy, but not as a WR, he also plays CB and that was the position many saw him best suited for in the NFL, of course the Chiefs opted for the opposite but who knows his work numbers are pretty damn good to go with some very good size, could be a nice signing for the practice squad and develop him as a DB.

    I’m not so sure I agree with that Dwyer has less than 1K rushing over 3 NFL season despite being on a team that needed a #1 RB to step up.

    It's no secret that Ben Roethlisberger doesn't want to run the ball. He got his OC fired over that a couple years ago. No RB will do good in Pittsburgh.

    Rotoworld reports that the talk around is that Dwyer isn't sure he want to continue playing.

    With regard to production and future, I'd certainly consider him in place of Bolden.

    I watched Dwyer very closely this pre-season and he looked fantastic. He lost weight, which in my view, is the reason why he showed that he had a second gear beyond the first line of defenders.

    I was very surprised that the Steelers let him go and I hope that Dwyer reconsiders his desire to continue to play football, if that report is true.

    He really did look good and after Le'Veon Bell went down with injury, I was almost certain that Dwyer would not only stick but be the starting running back.

    It is good to see that BB and Caserio brought him in. It tells me that they have been reviewing tape.
