People may argue he was a problem child - speaking out about how little he was used in SF. But don't we want a back who WANTS the ball - no more of Dwyer saying he needs a breather after 2 consecutive carries.
I don't know how often he's been injured - or if that is a concern, obviously that could change our interest. But when I've seen him play in NY - he was a pounder! We would still have Rainey, possibly Batch and the others for a change of pace back - but I've always wanted to see Jacobs in a Steeler uniform.
As he was cut by SF a few days ago - perhaps he would not cost a boatload of money since not a traditional F.A. whose contract had expired.
I don't know about 2013, but the Steelers should have looked at him last off season with Mendenhall's injury.
