Honestly I don't know if Adrian Petersen could run behind our line. Maybe next year they can field the same unit for more than two games and we can see.

I love Beanie's ability but he is always freakin hurt! Don't see the long term benefit.

We need dependable players....Wells gets hurt every year....NO Thanks!

He gets injured too much, he's not a good option at all. TBH I'd rather take a shot at Steven Jackson.

I would love to see Steven Jackson as a Steeler.

Much more interested in drafting somebody, or signing a veteran that's actually had success in the NFL. Not that the latter would happen with how we play free agency, but if I had to choose between a young, underachieving Wells who has been a bust for four seasons and an old Steven Jackson at the end of his career, I'd take Steven Jackson 9 times out of ten.

We cannot afford a " name " player in Free agency unless we drop about 4 " name" players.
