You're right, it would emulate Bettis' production after he turned 30: missed tons of games due to injury, fell below 4 Yds/CAR, split carries with Amos Zereoue and Duce and was mostly only effective as a goal line back...

Steelers need a young workhorse RB, not a complimentary guy on the downslope of their career.
