Let's get back to utilizing a running back before we sign free agents.

I haven't heard to many good things about Hilis and I think we have talent in Pitt.

Already have that type of back in Redman. Clay is huge as well. We need speed in our backfield.

Brandon Jacobs was just released, so that would be a cheaper option for a bruiser-type back.

If we want somebody from FA, I'd much rather go after Brandon Jacobs. He's at least somewhat of a proven commodity, would probably come cheap, and I personally would rather give him a starting role than Redman.

Don't need a FA back or anymore RB's for that matter, and Peyton Hillis would be the last one to look for.

Pittsburgh does not go after problematic players...never have and likely never will...and this guy has been a big problem over there and a locker room "drain" as well. Enough for even teammates to make not so nice remarks about him.
Its pretty comical as every time a player with issues, ego, and attitude hits the market, there's almost an immediate post in Steeler forums to that "we might have to sign that guy".
