Still think he would be at least worth having checked out.

After leaving the Giants - he signed with San Fran - where he was recently cut (this week) after complaining about his lack of action. He only touched the ball half a dozen times this year - so 8 years is not really 8 years of hits.

I agree that he may be talented or may have had talent but he is another Mendenhall with the attitud but without the quicks to get to the edge. No thanks man.

BJ....really?

We don't typically go after free agents let alone washed up free agents.
We typically don't have the personnel issues we have now.

I don't know, as much as I disagree with signing aging free agents, and as much as it goes against the Steelers MO, If there ever was a runningback for the the black and gold to sign to emulate Bettis and his short yardage running it would probably be Jacobs.

It's probably a moot point. Mendenhall is coming back. The only question is: can he still be coached up? I hope so. I still like his skill set and smarts, and I still want to see what he can do with a real line. That still hasn't happened.

May I ask where's your confiderence come from? Maybe I have missed the news. I don't remember that there is any news about him coming back.

It really doesn't look like he wants to play under Tomlin anymore.
